Good Times w/Really Reasonable Ribbon

If this card doesn't take you back to a sweet, innocent place in your childhood; I don't know what would.  Well, I guess that is if you grew up in the same era as I did.  Our school books had just darling illustrations and images.  That's why I've always been drawn to October Afternoon (out of business for many years now) products.  I used to go to their annual warehouse sale in Minnesota.  Needless to say, I have LOTS of their adorable products in my stash.
AND....when using my most cherished products from my coveted stash, there's no better way to adorn them than with the FABULOUS products at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Just look at how these few little extra touches jazzed up my nostalgic card.  I attached the woodgrain patterned paper and blue gingham patterned paper using Scor-Tape.  I also added a few small journalling/sentiment stickers.
I used an OA journalling card (with the bears and sentiment) as the focal point.  Yet, I knew this card needed and deserved a beautiful bow.  It started with a bow tied using Red Wrinkle Ribbon, Solid Bluebonnet Baker's Twine, Yellow Burlap String, and Green Burlap String.  I also tucked in a few Double Head Stamens, a Mulberry Leave, and I topped it off with a pretty little Yellow Cosmo Daisy.  I also used lots of darling Green Mulberry Leaves and Multi-Color Mulberry Leaves topped with red prills to represent berries.
There are SO many great products at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It starts with RIBBONS and trims, but it really is SO much more than just the oodles and oodles of wonderful ribbons and trims.  You can see how I always seem to find the perfect touches for every project at RRR.  They have every color of every lovely bobbit you can imagine.  Why not treat yourself today?
