Hi there. It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
This time we have a Monochromatic Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.
Have you seen the beautiful new June Ocean Breeze Ribbon Club Assortment yet from Really Reasonable Ribbon? It’s a pretty mix of colors that works perfect for those summer beach themed projects or mix and match for any number of occasions.

The June assortment has 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon. 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 pulled the pink toned ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment assortment to use on my card today.
My bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using the 5/8″ peony Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from the June Ribbon Club Assortment. The centers of my flowers are 8 and 10mm Half Pearls.

Hi friends. Today I’m sharing a pretty floral birthday card using one of my favorite flower die sets from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some pretty ribbons and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I have lots of layer on this card, but I think it’s pretty easy to see from the photo how the layers were assembled. I just love the Square Frames die for square cards.
My blue/tan background paper was made using Distress Inks spritzed with water. I tend to make extra when I make my Distress papers and I actually created another card in this same color scheme which you can see HERE.
My flowers and foliage were created with the Floral Bouquet die set from Cheery Lynn Designs
which is such a versatile flower set. I used some of the same paper from my background for the blue flower petals along with some navy and kraft color cardstock. The layers were also inked with an old script stamp for some additional interest. The flowers and foliage were cut and then shaped with a stylus and foam pad. The flowers were layered and finished off with some cool Metal Gear Embellishments
from Really Reasonable Ribbon
for a cool industrial feel. I added a pretty butterfly to the right side of the card to balance things out.
