Pocket Full of Pink

When I create a card, as most of you who know me are aware, I can't resist adding some sort of ribbon, lace or trim.  It just seems to be the perfect finishing touch, and by using my supplies from Really Reasonable Ribbon, there's always a perfect fit for everything.  For this particular project, I created a card and matching pocket bag with tags.  It's adorned with LOTS of great products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The patterned papers, chipboard, and stickers are from Crate Paper's Pretty Party line.  The card has two doilies (red and white) that are layered and the sentiment is a Pebbles sticker from my stash (as are some of the smaller stickers on the tags).  At the top of my card, I added three bows,  They were made using Lipstick Red Seam Binding, Teal Baker's Twine and Deep Pink Solid Baker's Twine.  Then, I added in some of Really Reasonable Ribbon's FABULOUS Mulberry Flowers including their Deep Pink Open Roses, White Open Roses, and Red Open Roses.
Then, I created the pocket bag using one of Really Reasonable Ribbon's great Decorative Bags.  ALL of their Decorative Bags are on clearance at FABULOUS prices.  The one I used on this project is the Middy Bitty Bag With Horizontal Stripes.  They are reduced to just $1.65 for 10 bags!  What a bargain, and they're SO cute!  I added some matching patterned paper, 3-D embellishments, and more of Really Reasonable Ribbon's sweet embellishments; including a Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Paper Green Leave, a small cluster of White Gypsophila, and another beautiful Deep Pink Open Rose.
For the three tags that I tucked inside the Pocket Card created from the Middy Bitty Bag With Horizontal Stripes, I simply covered some Grungy Prim Tags with matching patterned papers, added some stickers/sentiments, and then tied a length of Baker's Twine to the top of each one; including the sweet Raspberry Baker's Twine, Deep Pink Solid Baker's Twine and Teal Baker's Twine.  They all work together so well and compliment one another.  There's no "bad" or "wrong" combination of supplies when it comes to all the FABULOUS products carried at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  But rather, just the PERFECT trim for everything!
