Hello.....How Are You?

Hello!  How are you?  I'm sure glad you've stopped by today as I share a sweet little card I created using several FABULOUS Really Reasonable Ribbon products. It's always fun to adorn my cards with all their wonderful touches, and here's how I created this one.  I attached two patterned papers and a journalling card using strips of Scor-Tape, and then I ran a width of sweet Bay Leaf Seam Binding across my card and used it to tie a bow along with some Lipstick Red Seam Biding.  I topped that with some 10mm Red, Mixed Blue, and Black Open Roses, one 10mm Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Leaf and some adorable Red, White, Teal and Black Double Head Stamens.
I stamped my sentiments, added a stamped flower pot and flowers, a die-cut swirl border, vintage scotch tape, and some 10mm Rhinestone Resin Flowers.  I also attached a snippet of some awesome May Arts trims including a piece of Red Center-Stitched Burlap Trim; and I topped that with a (Black) Mixed Color Plaid Fabric Covered Button.  I did a bit of inking on the edges of my papers, and that's about it.
There are so many awesome products available at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and SO much more than just the hundreds of different ribbons and trims. You can find EmbellishmentsAdhesivesHair Accessories, and everything creative you can imagine to make something wonderful.  There are also sales and promotions, lots of inspiration, and our monthly Blog Hops here on the wonderful Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog; so be sure to stop by each day so you won't miss a thing.

Thanks again for visiting me, and have a great day!

I'm playing along here:
The Paper Players Challenge Blog - 400th Challenge CELEBRATION - I hope my bright, fun card says CELEBRATION because in my opinion, there's always cause to celebrate. This card doesn't match the colors in the inspiration photo like my first entry did (was inspired by), but this card is bright, fun and celebrates the art of keeping in touch.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Fun In The Sun - I figured with all these flowers and sweet colors, it must be a fun Summer card!
