Wait Patiently w/RRR

Hello, creative friends, and thanks for stopping by my blog today as I share a pretty card I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It's aways fun to adorn my cards with the pretty ribbons, trims, flowers and twines from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  These sweet products add so much fabulous texture and layering to my cards.
I painted my background using Lilac and Concord Oxide Inks on a white watercolor paper that I cut with Crimped Frame Die from The Greetery.  The stamped leaves and flowers are from a (retired) PTI stamp set called Petite Pots.  The stamped sentiment is from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.
The pretty things you see on the right-hand side of my card include some Solid Black Baker's Twine, Plum Baker's Twine, Double Head Stamens, and some pretty Miniature Pastel Sweetheart Blossoms.  I also tucked in some bundled Natural Burlap String which is a great "filler" for floral accents.  It's a very inexpensive trim, it comes in oodles of great colors, and it works perfectly every time.  You can find Burlap String here.
Thanks again for stopping by to say hello.  Be sure to visit Really Reasonable Ribbon and treat yourself to something new.  There are so many great options and you're sure to find the perfect accents for your next projects.  You'll find lots of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, so be sure to visit often.  Have a blessed and creative week, friends.

Here's where I'll be linking up this card:

Time Out Challenges - Word Prompt - Challenge #214 - A day without sunshine......certainly wouldn't bring any flowers.  That would be incredibly sad.

The Inspiration Station - Inspired by a Floral Shop - I was inspired by the greens.  While I love the pretty floral colors, I also enjoy the long green stems and wanted to show off both - the greens and the flowers.

Keep on crafting and creating!
