It’s time for another fun challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings today.  The theme is Buttons & Bows.  I have two samples this time around.

First I made a card with one of my favorite color combo’s – black and white.  I just love the great contrast when you go with a basic black and white color theme.

Other Challenges for this card:
The Deconstructed Sketch – sketch #45
Stampin’ for the Weekend – Challenge 6 Anything goes

Supplies used:
Ribbon/Baker’s Twine:  Really Reasonable Ribbon
Stamp:  Inkadinkado
Ink:  Memento 
Paper:  cardstock from my stash and design paper from Recollections
Other:  black pearls, Bow Easy Tool, Spellbinder nestabilities, button, cuttlebug embossing folder

Next I have a quick little set of bows on snap clips. 

These were very quick and easy to make up.  I covered my 50mm snap clips with 1/4″ white grosgrain and I made the bows with my Bow Easy Tool using 7/8″ pink gingham.  Once the bows were done, I trimmed off the tail so it would not show.  I threaded a flower shaped brad though my botton holes and secured the brad to the button.  Then I glued the button to the bow and attached the bow to the snap clip.   This is a good project to use some of your shorter lengths of ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you’re inspired to join in our challenge this time around.  You have until 4-12 to link up your Buttons & Bows project.
