Every Act of Kindness Grows the Spirit

Hi there ribbon lovers.  Bonnie here today with a new card featuring some of the gorgeous ribbons from the January Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and a gorgeous new Echo Park Stencil from Paper-Garden.ca.
When Paper-Garden.ca offered me the opportunity to review some Echo Park Paper stencils, I happily accepted.  I am not known for using stencils, but it sounded like fun, so I was in.  I am so happy that I accepted the offer as I LOVE the stencils I selected!  The stencil I used on my card today is the Branches Stencil from Echo Park Paper.  I will showcase another stencil on Saturday, January 13th, so I hope you’ll stop back then.
I used my Clarity Stencil Brush Set and Distress Inks in several green tones to apply color over the stencil.  Using the soft brushes makes it so easy.  I did one layer in light green colors and another layer in darker greens.  Then I layered them and topped with a lovely digital sentiment from the Sending Kindness set from Graciellie Design.

For a little added pizzazz I ran a piece of Hot Pink Checkerboard Satin from the January Ribbon Club Assortment across the center of the card under the sentiment.  The left side is secured behind the sentiment panel and the right side was run through a Pearl Square Ribbon Buckle and then the end was dove-tailed.  This is a great ribbon treatment when you want to keep the card flat for mailing.
My card was topped off with my favorite bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using ribbons from the January Ribbon club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow was adorned with a White Acrylic Daisy Embellishment.
