Oh, Baby! With Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello and thanks for taking a moment to stop by today.  Your visits make me happy, and I hope you know how grateful I am for the comments you leave.  Today I'm sharing a sweet card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used a sweet line called Oh, Baby from Simple Stories, and I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest by Jeanne Jachna.  While she didn't use any ribbons on her card, you know I couldn't resist.  For me, the card simply isn't finished until I've added the ribbons!
I attached my patterned papers together using strips of an amazing Adhesive called Scor-Tape.  I attached an oval journalling piece to the journalling card (if that makes sense).  I did this to "hide" the writing on the card.  I placed the giraffes sticker over the journalling piece, and I topped that with another sticker (Oh, Baby) using 3-D Adhesive Foam Tabs to raise it up.  I did the same thing with the heart stickers by attaching the 3-D Adhesive Foam Tabs to those as well.  I added some White Flatback Pearls to the heart stickers.
I also added two different washi tapes and several stickers.  Then came the really fun part....the ribbons!  I ran a width of Cream Seam Binding across my card, and used that and some soft, sweet Baby Pink Seam Binding to create a nice fluffy bow.  I used a piece of Teal Baker's Twine to tie together several Pink Miniature Double Head Stamens, White Miniature Double Head Stamens and Baby Blue Miniature Double Head Stamens.  I attached those with some hot glue, and covered the "mess" with some Blue, Green and Yellow Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms from the Mixed Pastels Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms collection.  Every sweet little touch makes the card even cuter, and Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect place to find all things sweet to help take your cards and projects to the next level.
Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to join us on Sunday, January 13, for the first day of our monthly Really Reasonable Ribbon BLOG HOP.  You could be the lucky winner of this month's fabulous Ribbon Club Assortment.  I hope you'll join us.
