Follow Your Heart - Really Reasonable Ribbon

Don't you just LOVE ribbons🎀??  I know that for me, they are pretty much a necessity in crafting.  Very rarely do I create a card (or anything else for that matter) that doesn't include a ribbon or bow of some sort.  I just really enjoy the warmth and texture that ribbons, bows, twines and trims add to our works of art.  Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect place to find every color and style of ribbons and trims, and SO much more.
I created this card to share with you today.  It's a perfect example of how truly AMAZING all the products at Really Reasonable Ribbon are.  I started with a cardstock base and added a piece of patterned paper that I topped with another smaller strip of patterned paper.  I attached half of a tea-stained doily underneath the strip.  The sentiment is a chipboard piece that I picked up recently at Tuesday Morning in a package for just $1.99.  It's always exciting to find perfect little treasures at Tuesday Morning.  But hey.....I couldn't stop there!  The touches from Really Reasonable Ribbon are what make this card truly special.
I attached a width of Silver Seam Binding across my card and attached a 16mm Pearl Heart Shaped Ribbon Buckle Slide to it.  Next, I tied a bow with the Silver Seam Binding, and a length of the lovely Blue Jay Seam Binding and Summer Rose Seam Binding.  I also tucked in a length of Navy Burlap String, some Double Head Stamens and I must say.....these AMAZING precious little accents are almost gone.  I don't know if they'll be restocked, but I know you will LOVE them as much as I do.  You really should grab what's left before they are gone.
I topped my bow with a beautiful Yellow Cherry Blossom and stuck in a couple of pins for accent.  There's also a sweet little 11mm White Heart Shaped Flatback Imitation Pearl next to the sentiment.  I also tucked in three different Mulberry Leaves including a 35mm Green, a  30mm Green & White, and a new 25mm Green/Yellow/White Leaf. There are so many cute Embellishments in the RRR Shop in addition to all the Seam Binding, Mulberry Flowers, and SO much more.  Cute, cute, cute!  That's what you'll find at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Please visit again soon and often so that you won't miss out on any new products, loads of inspiration, special sales and promotions, our monthly blog hop, plenty of good shopping, and so much more.

Blessings,
Karen

Dare2BeArtzy - September Challenge - Your Favorite Color - Well, I love ALL colors, but I think that pink has always been at the top of that list.  So...I used a pink base and kept it my primary color.
