RRR Challenge #112 – Purple and Green theme

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

This time we have a Purple and Green Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.
I love purple and green together and this month’s Ribbon Club Assortment at Really Reasonable Ribbon might just be my all time favorite!!  
For my card today I used the gorgeous Kiwi Shimmer satin from the assortment.  If you love this assortment too, hurry over and grab it today while it’s still available!
I love to go with a somewhat simple to make card once in a while and I pulled out my Graphic 45 Time to Flourish paper pack for this card.
My double-layer bow was made on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  Visit my YouTube Channel to view all my Bow-it-All Tutorials.
I hope you’ll head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and play along with our challenge.  Any type of project is welcome.
Thanks for stopping by!

Love You….

Happy hump-day everyone.  We made it to Wednesday!  It’s all downhill to the weekend from here.
Today I’m playing along with the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge – Shaped Card theme.

I just love making beautiful paper flowers and I was playing around with the Cheery Lynn Designs Tea Rose Medium and the Sweet Christine Flowers for this card.
I had my round card finished and it was just a little blah…..  No personality at all!  So I was shuffling through my die scraps from previous projects and came across the piece on the top which is a portion of the Royal Scandinavian Doily die.  It looks like a little crown, right?!  Perfect finishing touch.
My bow is a simple double-looped bow made with 5/8″ Delicate Stitched Satin from Really Reasonable Ribbon created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  For how-to videos on creating beautiful bows with the Bow-it-All, please visit my YouTube channel.  
Isn’t the pretty Sweet Christine flower a pretty finishing touch for the bow?
Here is a close-up of all the gorgeous flowers.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:

Welcome to the RRR February Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from Amber’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.
This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a mix of purple and green.  Possibly my all time favorite color combination!!

Not a member of Ribbon Club yet?  Join today!!  This is the perfect way to build your ribbon stash so you always have just the right color and style for every project.
I was having so much fun I made 3 projects this month.  My bows were made on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  To view all my Bow-it-All video tutorials, visit my YouTube channel.  I have a brand new Double-Loop Double-Layer Bow Tutorial out which will show you how I created the plaid bow below.
I’m entering the card above in the following challenges:
And of course my Woven Ribbon Headband of the Month!  This would be prefect for St. Patty’s Day as well as all summer long.  The shimmer in the kiwi shimmer satin is so nice in person.  I wish it would photograph as good as it really is.  You can find a video tutorial for this headband HERE.  This one was made using a 3/4″ White Plastic Headband.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Your next stop is Karen’s fabulous blog.
