Hello, Ribbon lovers!  Time for another fabby challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The theme this go round is “Things with Wings.”  This is always a fun challenge theme, especially when we are drawing close to Halloween.  I pulled out my gorgeous September Too Cute to Spook Ribbon Club Assortment and Graphic 45’s Rare Oddities collection to work up this Frightfully Sweet Halloween Card.

I fussy cut some creepy bottles from the paper collection to dress up this pretty grape patterned paper.

I had such fun making this Frightfully Sweet Halloween card.  I hope you enjoyed it, too!

Be sure to pop over to the RRR Blog where you’ll find all the rules for this challenge.  It’s easy to link up your own Things with Wings and ribbon project.  It does not have to be Halloween themed.

Thanks for stopping by!

I just love the way these colors POP!  Tangerine Shimmer Satin draws the eye to the majestic owl perched on a skeleton key.
