Love Your Life Bee Themed Card for the RRR April 2020 Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  Here’s a sunny bee themed card to brighten your day! Welcome to the RRR April 2020 Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Karen’s beautiful blog.  Today we’re working with the Spring Rainbow Assortment from the April Ribbon Club.

This cheery 5″ x 7″  card features sunny triple loop bow tied with 3/8″ Lemon Swiss Dots Satin Ribbon.   I’ve also wrapped the base of a patterned paper panel with Wheat Solid Color Baker’s Twine.

The inside is decorated with more patterned papers and punch out elements from the Authentique Poised Collection.  My digital bee images are from Gecko Galz.  Flowers are Little Birdie Wendy Sunshine and Lemonade and Yellow Crackle (out of stock).   I embossed a panel of cream cardstock with an old Anna Griffin Cuttlebug folder to serve as a place to write my greeting.

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Cherry has in store for you this month.  Be sure to finish over on the RRR Blog where you can answer Bonnie’s question of the month.  Maybe you will be the lucky winner of your very own April Ribbon Club Assortment!

If you don’t want to risk missing out on this gorgeous ribbon assortment, you might want to subscribe to the monthly ribbon club.  You can find all the details and sign up HERE.

Thanks so much for hopping with us this month!

    Kathy, this card for the RRR blog hop is simply delightful. The yellows of this card are so cheery…so the yellow ribbon is perfect for showing off the beautifully colored ribbons in this month’s set. Especially enjoyed the touch of embossing on the inside paper. Great idea that I know I’ll be using 🙂 tfs-hugs. Stay well.

    Kathy, this is one of those cards that every time I look at it , it just makes me smile. We do love our bees. They are the most wonderful little creatures and what a beautiful image from Gecko Galz! And of course Authentique paper to set it off. You could not have found paper with more perfect patterns and colors. Just stunning! The flowers, ribbon and buttons are absolute perfection! LOVE it all! Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

    I was just working on plans for a couple of bee themed cards…nice timing! LOVE that dangling been charm…the element that makes this card for me!! The 3 buttons are quite unique and attractive on this card. Nice coordination of image colors and floral display. That yellow and white print, on front and inside, And just look at those 2 plaids…nice layering chopices. I do love this card!

    Beautiful card Kathy. I’ve never thought of just adding papers all over to the inside tops and bottoms. I think I need to get over being too matchy matchy. That if the papers are in the same paper pad, different design, but have the same color combinations, that they all go together regardless. Be safe & TYFS

    Oh I love this card! It’s a wonderful combination of shabby and vintage. I have a thing for bees! NOT real ones vintage images of them. Love this design! So clean and striking!

    I hope you had a blessed Easter day!
