RRR BLOG HOP: Gloriously Green Springtime Banner

RRR Blog Hop BadgeHello, Ribbon Lovers!  It’s time for another fabulous Blog Hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon.  You should be coming here from Karen’s beautiful blog.  If you are off track, please visit the RRR BLOG where you will find a complete list of all the blogs on this hop.

Today, I have a Gloriously Green Springtime Banner to share with you.  It’s made with the Gorgeously Green February Ribbon Club Assortment which is the perfect tonic for the winter blahs.  Take a peeky:

Gorgeously Green Ribbon Club Assortment


I just love the springtime freshness of these fabby ribbons!  This month, the RRR team is being sponsored with digital images from our teamie, Ginny Nemchak.  Ginny owns Polly’s Paper Studio and she generously shared her beautiful artwork with us.  I thought her Large Floral Journal Cards would look smashing with this month’s Ribbon Club Assortment, so  I worked them up into this gloriously green springtime banner.

The individual pennants were then stitched onto white netting that I topped with shimmery Apple Green Swiss Mini Dot Satin ribbon.  I love the way this emphasized the green tones in Ginny’s digi art.  Here are some close ups of the individual pennants.

Next,  I found the little bird image in my stash, and framed him with this painted and glittered chipboard.

This ornate chip frame was painted with Picket Fence Distress Paint and then splattered with Worn Lipstick and Shabby Shutters Distress Paint.  It makes me think of a field full of spring clovers.

The painted and stamped fashionista chipboard was perched on top with foam tabs. Another cluster of gorgeous mulberry flowers and ribbons finishes the right hand side of the banner.

    Wow! That is absolutely gorgeous! If I were to even try making something like that, it would take me so many days (or maybe weeks) to complete it. Fabulous outcome and I just love all those details you have added. Great make.

    A lovely breath of fresh springtime air seems to come over me when I view this beautiful banner! Every detail just breathes freshness, but my favorite is that splattered chipboard frame. Yes, I can visualize a meadow of spring flowers! Gorgeous, Kathy!
