New Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Well, hello, and thanks for visiting today!  It's time for a fun new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and this time our theme is Anything Goes.  That means you can link up ANY project that includes ribbon, lace, twine, or some sort of spooled trim.  We always enjoy seeing your creativity, and every card is better with ribbon.  So, why not come play along?
For this fun new Anything Goes Challenge, I chose to create a sweet card using some Crate Paper products (some of my faves), and of course.....LOTS of great Really Reasonable Ribbon goodies to adorn it!  Once I inked and placed my patterned papers, I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment on a coordinating piece of chipboard.  Next, I added half of a white paper doily, and because Really Reasonable Ribbon has SO MANY FABULOUS Mulberry Flowers, I knew I could find the perfect colors to match my card.
I added one Two-Toned Yellow Open End Rose, one Deep Pink Open End Rose, and one Baby Blue Open End Rose.  I love the sweet little stems on these fabulous Mulberry Flowers, and I enjoy twirling the ends.  I also tucked in a Green/White Mulberry Leaf under the flowers, and a long length of wrapped Natural Burlap String.  All these fabulous layers of paper, doilies and ribbon are securely held in place with a wonderful Adhesive called Scor-Tape.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I really do hope that you will play along in this fun new Anything Goes Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Have a great week, and happy ribbony crafting!

Double D Challenges: Pastel Party

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Summer Sunshine - I used sunshine yellow paper, and of need sunshine to grow!

Deep Ocean Challenge Blog - Challenge #158 - Lots of Layers

Southern Girls Challenge Blog - Challenge #163 - Ribbon or Twine - I can't hardly make a card without trim.  I used a yellow mesh ribbon and some natural burlap string on this card.

Mod Squad Challenge Blog - Mark It, Stamp It - This challenge is SO perfect for this card.  If you look carefully at the close-up photos of my stamped image, you will see where I marked it (with my marker) the first time...and it stamped SO faintly.....and then, I marked it again (with a better marker), and it stamped beautifully.  But you can see both attempts if you look closely.

Tic Tac Toe Challenge - #005 - My tic tac toe is diagonally to include Ribbon, Die-Cut, Birthday, and across to include Birthday, Patterned Paper, and Pink.
