Have a ‘Banner Birthday’!!

Hi everyone.  I have a quick card to share today that I created for the JustRite Friday Challenge #104 – Clean and Simple Sketch.  
I happened to have the great JustRite Buntings and Buttons Die set so I was off and running…….
My Happy Birthday sentiment is from the JustRite Large Fancy Sentiments set.  
And of course all the ribbon and Baker’s Twine is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

‘Back To School’ Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog.  

This time we have a Back to School Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

I used one of Heather’s fun collage sheets called Tiny Vintage Back To School along with digi sentiments from TLC Creations.  I ran a layer ribbon strip using 5/8″ Black Diamond Satin and 3/8″ Ruby Red Double-Faced Satin under the sentiment and I tied a beautiful double bow made from 7/8″ Red Gingham for the top of the card.  I lightly inked the gingham with Old Paper Distress Ink so it would go better with the kraft color cardstock.  The background is embossed with a Spellbinders Numbers and Letters embossing folder and I lightly inked it with black ink.

Here is a closeup of the gingham bow.
The inside sentiment is also from TLC Creations and it’s layered on several Spellbinder die cuts.  I also have a narrow strip of embossing using a Darice embossing folder.
This card has been entered in the following challenges:
I hope you’ll head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings Blog and play along with our challenge.  Any type of project is welcome.
Thanks for stopping by!

Classic Birthday Card

Today I have a cleaner more classy looking card to share.  

Maybe a little bit too much going on to call it CAS, but I tried to tone it down a bit.  I just love the ivory and purple color combo too.

And inside……
I ran a piece of 5/8″ Light Orchid Diamond Satin across the middle of the card under the sentiment and I twisted a Purple 20mm Open Rose around each side to give the ribbon a little bit of a gathered look.  I also added a little bit of shimmer to the butterfly with some Stickles although it really doesn’t show in the photo.
Here is a close-up of the double bow made with 5/8″ Light Orchid Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon.  I also wrapped a Purple 20mm Open Rose around the center of the bow.
And…. a sweet little cluster of White Sweetheart Blossoms.
And here is the finished card.  It never shows up well in my photos, but the embossed background adds a subtle and elegant touch.  
Now who will I give this card to……
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
