Hi friends. Bonnie here today from Make Time to Craft sharing a pretty floral birthday card showcasing some of my favorite dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Have you seen the beautiful new January Ribbon Club Assortment? This pretty assortment is themed for Valentine’s Day, but as you can see, it works for other things too. If you love pink, you will LOVE this assortment.
This pretty assortment has 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and crochet lace. Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon. What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.
I don’t know about you, but I’m having trouble getting back in the groove after the holidays. It doesn’t help that it’s freezing outside. It’s been in the single digits for days with no end in sight. Makes me want to crawl back in bed and pull the covers over my head!
So, flowers and pink are in order! Flowers always make me happier.
My background die is the pretty Alpine Flourish Doily. This is one of the dies in my very first order from Cheery Lynn Designs and I still love it as much as I did all those years ago and it’s so versatile. The lovely sentiment is from the Happy Greetings Set from Graciellie Design.
My roses were made with the Small and Medium Tea Rose Dies. I alternated solid pink cardstock with some Distress Ink cardstock I created for a little more depth in the flowers. The petals layers were shaped with a stylus and foam pad before assembling.
