So Very Special

One thing I can say for sure about two of my favorite (Crate Paper and Really Reasonable Ribbon) products is that they are "SO VERY SPECIAL".  Perhaps that's why I can't resist them. I absolutely LOVE Crate Paper's wonderful patterned papers, stickers, ephemera, chipboard, and super sweet embellishments.  And I adore Really Reasonable Ribbon's sweet ribbons, trims, laces and accessories.  There's just no end to the cuteness and the creativity they both allow.  So, once again I pulled them all out, and combined them to create this sweet Birthday Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I used some patterned papers that I layered and machine stitched.  I also added lots of great stickers, a Tim Holtz journalling tag, and then embellished the card with more of Really Reasonable Ribbon's WONDERFUL ribbons to add the perfect finishing touches.  Around the chipboard gifts, I wrapped some Metallic Gold String which I think really makes your cards sparkle with happiness.  Then, I ran a length of Yellow Micro Gingham up the card, and also tied a double bow with it in the upper left section of my card.  Underneath the Yellow Micro Yellow Ribbon, I tied a sweet knot of the lovely May Arts Burlap Center Stitch in Pink.  In the center of that lovely bow, I placed a Crate Paper (4) brad for a Birthday Girl who is turning 4 years old.  Don't you just LOVE Really Reasonable Ribbon?  If you've never stopped by this AMAZING ribbon shop, I encourage you to stop by and do some shopping.  You will absolutely LOVE everything you see!
There's lots of great inspiration every day on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, and there's also a super fun CHALLENGE where you can play along.  We love having you visit and join us.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
