Really Reasonable Ribbon Pretty Bows Challenge
There’s a brand new challenge up on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. Show us your prettiest bows in out Pretty Bow Challenge!
Oh yes! Pretty ribbons make this card sing. Don’t you just love this gorgeous bow made with Bluebird Plaid and Ivory Burlap String? It was the perfect match for the vintage bathing suit in this Vintage Beach Flapper Girls Digital Collage from Polly’s Paper Etsy. I dug into my vast hoard of papers and found this beautiful Blue Awning paper from K & Company, which picked up on all the great vintage blues found in the project.
I die cut a burlap seahorse and starfish to embellish the page, along with a big blue polka dot flower that I found in my stash. I glittered it up with Diamond stickles and Prima Pearls, and surrounded it with some Petaloo Sugared blossoms. The silver star brads are from Stampin Up. The leaves were freehand cut from an old book.
I love to layer on texture, so I wrapped a couple strands of white netting around the card base. It makes me think of fish nets, and I love how it lightens up the card. To add even more texture, I put down a row of Elise Crochet lace on top of the Bluebird Plaid. It was a little brighter white than what I wanted, so I just lightly tapped it with Vintage Photo Distress ink to make it perfectly vintage.
This Vintage Beach Flapper just makes me want to say boop-boop-be-doop! How does she tie such gorgeous bows, you may ask? With my trusty Zutter-Bow-it-All tool, that’s how! It makes a perfect bow each and every time. I loooove this tool!
Stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog for more inspiration from the team, and don’t forget to link up your fabby project to the Pretty Bows Challenge at RRR.
