Anything Goes at Really Reasonable Ribbon

It's challenge time at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and this time it's Anything Goes!  Each member of the RRR Design Team has created a project for this challenge using several of the sweet images from Polly's Paper Studio.  The set I used is called Retro Valentines, and it has eight super sweet images.  I used only four of them.  I wanted to create a little Valentine's gift bag for my niece and newphews (Audra's kids) to let them know I'm thinking of them.  I know that Audra would have done something special for them for Valentine's Day.  This very first photo shows a little container I decorated to hold their goodies.  I decorated the front of it with Vanessa White Crochet Lace, Pink Burlap String, Lipstick Red Seam Binding, Cherry Baker's Twine, and Pink Roses With Scalloped Edge on White Grosgrain Ribbon.  There's also a 3-D embellishment in the center.
Then, I used tiny little white treat bags, and placed a pink die-cut doily on each.  Next, I placed the Retro Valentine's (four of them) on each bag.  I made a bow for each bag.....and placed them in the lower left corner.  Each bow is made from the following trims in the order which I attached them - first, a length of Lipstick Red Seam Binding, then a length of Pink Aster Seam Binding, and then a length of Red Solid Baker's Twine (perfect for Valentine's Day).  Each bow is topped with a sweet little Two-Toned Pink Sweetheart Blossom.  I also clipped a tiny wooden clothespin with a black chalkboard heart to the top of each bag.  Of course, I will stuff them with candy or a gift card before I give them to the kids.
Here's some really exciting news.   The lucky winner of this Anything Goes Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon will win FIVE (5) digital files of choice from Polly's Paper Studio for themselves!!  This is really a fabulous prize, and the lucky winner will be chosen by random draw, so....EVERYONE who enters has an equal chance of winning.  This sweet shop carries the most adorable images, and they are SO easy to use.
I just printed them, cut them, and pasted them on my project.  And how STINKING CUTE are they?  You will definitely want to play along for the chance to win this amazing prize.  And....we always LOVE having you play along in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenges.   Just include some sort of trim (ribbon, lace, twine, etc.) on your project, and you will be eligible to win this lovely prize.
I can't thank you enough for stopping by my blog today.  I'm always so grateful for your sweet comments, and always looks forward to visiting your blog to see what you have been creating.  And....if you're in search of some fabulous ribbons or trims (among other great embellishments), then take time to stop by Really Reasonable Ribbon to do some shopping.  They're sure to have the perfect trims and flowers for your next project.

Blessings to you,
