RRR Blog Hop Sponsored by Sparkle N Sprinkle
Happy Sunday and welcome to the February Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon! If you have arrived here from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings site then you are at the right place and on the right track. If you have arrived here first, please start the hop at the RRR Ramblings so that you will know what terrific prizes await you this month. We were asked to use ribbons from the February Ribbon Club Assortment and they are so absolutely gorgeous and are so very SPRINGTIME!!! They are so cute and lovely---you can see them in my SWEET STUFF below!!!! I wanted to use all of them BUT my brain just could not figure out how to be that creative....smile... You will find that several of the ribbons each month are unique to club members and are not available in the shop---one of the great benefits of being a member of the Ribbon Club and one of the reasons to join!! This month we are being sponsored Sparkle N Sprinkle.
For my card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is from an old MM Flower Patch paper pad. All background panels were machine stitched. I used the cute Flower Bear and the "Bearing Birthday Wishes" sentiment from the Bears on Parade set from Sparkle N Sprinkle, stamped them on Cryogen White, colored them with Copics, and cut out with triple Nesties. I also used 3 colors of Semi-Transparent Glitter: Bubblegum, Cyclamen, and Misty Isles on the flower and leaf. I also used Glossy Accents on the chartreuse Wellies and the vase and Spica on her necklace and bracelet. For the vertical I used the beautiful Diamond Satin Light Yellow which is included in this month's Ribbon Club Assortment. I also used the Bow Easy Tool to tie all bows. The flowers in the floral treatment are from my stash.
The inside is very simple since the front is so thick and decorated so heavily.
SWEET STUFF...and now for some SWEET STUFF to celebrate the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop!!!!
