Silver & Gold Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

It's time for a fun new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and this time our theme is Silver & Gold.  You can enter any project you choose as long it includes silver, gold, or both.....and of course, ribbon or trim of some sort.  We're really excited to see what you will create.
For this challenge, I chose to create a silver card.  I started with some glittery silver specialty papers that I inked on the edges with silver ink.  Next, I added a width of 5/8" Satin with Stitched Center in Grey/Silver.  This sweet ribbon comes in nine gorgeous colors.  Next, I added a bow that includes a bow tied with Charcoal Grey Seam Binding topped with two bows tied with Silver Metallic String.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries this sweet Metallic String in both Silver and Gold, and they cost just $1.50 for 10 yards which is a great price, and is a beautiful accent to ANY project.  Underneath the bow, I tucked a Wild Orchid Crafts Spiral Stamen in Silver, and these sweet little accents are so much fun.  They come in packages of 12 pieces for $2.29 and also come in 9 gorgeous colors to accent any project.  I also topped the bow with three Ivory Sweetheart Blossoms.  These delightful little flowers come in a wide array of lovely colors, and are just the sweetest little accent ever!
Finally, I added a stamped sentiment on vellum that I stamped and embossed in silver, and at the bottom of my card, I added a couple more Ivory Sweetheart Blossoms and a lovely 12mm Crystal Flatback Round Acrylic Rhinestone.  Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries oodles of sweet Embellishments to accent your cards and projects.  They really have it all!
We would absolutely love to have you stop by and play along in our fun new Silver & Gold Challenge.  Really Reasonable Ribbon wants to be your go-to store for ribbons, twines and trims, flowers and embellishments.  And there's always lots of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.

Happy crafting!
