Flowers & Ribbon Themed Challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog

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

This time we have a Flowers and Ribbon Theme to get in the mood for Spring.  I welcome any small sign of Spring outside my window!

I tried to go a little CAS (Clean and Simple) today using a sketch from Mojo Monday.
My beautiful double-loop double-layer bow was made using my Bow-it-All V2.0 and some beautiful Delicate Stitched Satin in Tropic from the Really Reasonable Ribbon March Ribbon Club Assortment

Birthday Wishes for Dani and a Video Review of the NEW Zutter Handy Die and Stamp Storage System

Happy Friday everyone!  
Today is my sweet niece Dani’s birthday and I made this pretty card for her.  

I still can’t get enough of the beautiful colors in the RRR February Ribbon Club assortment and I used three of the styles on my card today.  If you don’t have one yet, you can still grab one.  It’s been so popular that it will continue to be available through March.
I’m still having a blast making pretty paper flowers.  Can you say obsessed?!!
I love the texture from the pretty Spellbinders Harlequin Embossing folder.  I layered some of the pretty purple and green confetti dot grosgrain over kiwi shimmer satin across the card under my sentiment.
Here is a close-up of my pretty little double-loop bow made with the Grape Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon from the February Ribbon Club Assortment.  I created the bow on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  To view all my Bow-it-All videos, please visit my YouTube channel.
This card has been entered in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly – Take Your Pick  –  I used cool colors for the color theme option
Aud Sentiments #126 – Bingo  I have ribbon, flower, embossing
I also want to share a review of the NEW Handy Die and Stamp Storage System from Zutter Innovative.  
I was offered this product by Zutter Innovative to review.  There was no expectation that I was to promote the product in any way.  I am offering the review because I really love the storage system and it’s the best I’ve tried, and let me tell you – I’ve tried a lot!  These smaller storage systems are great companions to the larger size they offer giving you even more organization options. Zutter did a GREAT job designing this product and I’m loving the two size options to further organize my ever growing die and cling stamp collection!

Thanks for stopping by!
