Really Reasonable Ribbon Show Me the Green!

RRR Challenge #89 Show Me the Green plus Ribbon or Trim

Hello, all you fabulous ribbon lovers!  It’s time for the new challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Challenge #89 is “Show Me the Green” plus ribbon or trim.  I think we are all ready for some green after all the winter white we’ve seen.  This is such a great way to kick off the month of March.  I hope you will play along. You will find the rules for this challenge on the RRR blog. Be sure to visit the rest of the fabby RRR designers, too.  You can find links to their blogs in my sidebar.  Now, let’s take a look at my inspiration piece for this challenge:

Graphic 45 A Place in Time Adorned in Green

RRR Show Me the Green Challenge 04

I chose this sweet image to adorn this card.  The image itself was fairly small, so I matted it on cardstock, elevated the frame with adhesive dots, and mounted the image on two different Spellbinder dies. I also covered the pretty garden girl with Glossy Accents to give her more of a presence on the card.  The frame was lightly dotted with Diamond Stickles. The card base was made with a panel of spring green polka dot paper and chic green and white striped paper.  To add texture and visual interest, I added rows of lace, leaves and ribbon to the base of the card.

I also added a little crochet doily over the chipboard flower and a little bird stamp that was treated with UTEE.  I also created a loopy bow from hemp twine and added a double layer of buttons.

A little stitching, a little distressing….this card is quick and easy, but it doesn’t look like it.  Gotta love that.

I repeated the ribbon on the inside of the card with room to write any kind of note…birthdday, get well….or even St. Patrick’s Day!

I decorated the envelope with the same papers from the card front.

    Kathy – Your card is so beautiful! It’s just the touch of spring I needed to see. We’re expecting some kind of horrible winter storm (sleet/snow, perhaps 6″ to 10″) over the rest of this weekend…so viewing your lovely wisp of a girl really made my day. I love the way you put so many elements together to create all your layers! Another gorgeous card and envelope!
