God Always Keeps His Promises

Hello there, and thanks for popping by today.  I'm sharing a pretty card today that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using a few of their GORGEOUS products.  I completely realize that there are OODLES of stores out there for crafters, and that we have SO many wonderful choices.  I will say this......I've never encountered any other place where I can find the most GORGEOUS Mulberry Flowers, Leaves,  Burlap String, Twine, Ribbons, Adhesives, Embellishments, and so much more all in one place.  Ribbons, in general, give our projects rich dimension and texture.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has GREAT prices (including reasonable shipping rates), and an AMAZING selection of beautiful products.
I used some Farmhouse patterned papers and button/journalling card from October Afternoon  to create my card base.  I stamped the sentiment (God Always Keeps His Promises) in green, and used a few Tim Holtz miniature staples.  Then.....the fun part - the RIBBON treatment.  I bundled up a length of Olive Green Burlap String and a length of Lemonwood Stripe Baker's Twine.  Next, I tied two bows using the Yellow Gingham Ribbon (found in this month's Ribbon Club Assortment) and added those.  I also laid some Yellow Double-Head Stamens, Baby Blue Double-Head Stamens, White Double-Head Miniature Stamens, and Matcha Green Double-Head Miniature Stamens.  I topped all that loveliness with some Yellow Open RosesAutumn Gold Open Roses, some Blue Sweetheart Blossoms and a 30mm Green Paper Leaf.
You may also notice that I tucked in an antique (very vintage) button as well as a darling little White Acrylic Flower from our awesome Embellishments section.  I can always count on Really Reasonable Ribbon to have the PERFECT ribbons, trims, flowers, etc. to match everything.  They truly have it ALL when it comes to taking your cards and projects to the next level.  Why not treat yourself today?  We're always happy to have you stop by at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
