Live Your Dream Birthday Card with Pockets

Live Your Dream Birthday Card with Pockets: RRR November Ribbon Club Assortment

Hello Ribbon Lovers!  Have you seen the Country Holiday Collection from Really Reasonable Ribbon yet?  Oooh la la!  This pretty mix of ribbons is filled with a rainbow of beautiful ribbons that also work very well on shabby chic projects.  Take a look at this Live Your Dream Birthday Card for example:

live-your-dream-birthday-card-by-kathy-clement-for-really-reasonable-ribbon-photo-1Pink and brown is one of my all time favorite color combos!

live-your-dream-birthday-card-by-kathy-clement-for-really-reasonable-ribbon-photo-2-jpgI created this gorgeous bow cluster with Brown Diamond Satin Ribbon,  and Gold and Copper Diamond Print Grosgrain Ribbon, It’s topped with a gorgeous Pink Petaloo Anemone.  I love the way these ribbons bring the printed paper to life!

If you’re not a member of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Club, it’s easy to join.  Once a month, you’ll receive a gorgeous selection of high quality ribbon.  With Christmas coming, maybe you can tell Santa that’s what you want in your stocking this year.  You can find all the details HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh my gracious, Kathy! This is a card after my own heart. Birds AND butterflies!! I love the way you began with a neutral background then brought in the fabulous pop of bright pink. It’s like taking a stroll through a summer garden! I’ve barely been on the computer so I’ve been missing you. When we evacuated for Hurricane Matthew we were within about an hour from you. My hope was to call you to see if you could to meet for dinner, then the weather decided to go really, really bad. Leave it to me to evacuate directly into the path of the storm-lol! Anyway, we’ll be up your way again soon and it won’t be so last minute next time.

    Sending love and hugs,
