Cute Little Paper Clip Embellies

I’m sure I’ll be making more of these!

From here, you will hop on over and see what kind of fun Deborah has in store for you.  Visit all the blogs on the hop, leave a  nice comment and then hop on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog to answer Bonnie’s question of the month.  Then you’ll be entered into a drawing to win your very own Colors of Autumn Ribbon Club Assortment so you can add just a hint of fall to your projects!

Thanks for stopping by!  Now go get your craft on!

Cakewalk Happy Birthday Card

Cakewalk Happy Birthday Card for RRR

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Our sweet l’il grandgirl celebrated her 4th birthday recently.  Naturally, I had to make her a special card for her special day.  So I pulled out my Really Reasonable Ribbon  and worked up this super fun retro Cakewalk Happy Birthday Card to help her celebrate.

Cakewalk Happy Birthday Card for RRRI love this retro color palette of teal and aqua.  I carried it out by embellishing my card with cheery Red Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon topped with a White Iridescent Metallic String Bow.  Simple punched circles are dressed up with a WOC Trellis Rose and some Red and White Sweetheart Blossoms.

Cakewalk Happy Birthday Card To add  texture, I lined the base panel with a strip of Melissa Natural Crocheted Lace.  This combination of ribbon, lace and flowers really make this card birthday party ready!

If you are also a fan of this great retro color palette, you’ll want to take a peek at the April Ribbon Club Collection, which features a fantastic mix of red and turquoise ribbons.
