Beautiful Floral Birthday Card

Hello ribbon lovers.  Today I am sharing a pretty floral birthday card featuring some of the ribbons form the new June Ocean Breeze Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This is such a beautiful collection with soft pastel colors.

The June assortment contains 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.  Treat yourself today!

My card is a lovely mix of pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  My background paper was made with Distress Inks so I could pull in several of the colors from the Ribbon Club Assortment.  I love the way it turned out.  It’s actually left over pieces from another project I will share next week.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

My pretty bow was made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using the two 5/8″ Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment.

The May Ribbon Club Assortment is a Red, White and Blue Ribbon Mix that contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a holiday or color themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

While this assortment is great for Patriotic themed cards like the one I shared in THIS POST, it’s also great for other summer occasions.  I made a great Summer Birthday Card a few days ago along with this fun summer card I’m sharing today.  This card would be a great note card or even a summer bbq invitation.

Jo’s Scrap Shack’s 5th Blogaversary Birthday Celebration Blog Hop

Welcome to Jo’s Scrap Shack’s 5th blogaversary birthday celebration hop! In honor of celebrating 5 wonderful years, Jo has an amazing two day blog hop lined up with 18 talented designers, several sponsors,  some of which are among the top companies in the industry and lots of blog candy! So please share this news with your crafty friends, grab your favorite beverage and hop along with us! If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, go visit Jo’s Scrap Shack. If that’s where you started, you should have come from Tina’s blog and if you did, you are right on track with the hop!

I’m so excited to be participating in this blog hop.  Congratulations to Jo for 5 wonderful years of blogging!  Be sure to stop by Jo’s Blog to see all the wonderful prizes that are available and see what you need to do to be entered to win.  Winners will be announced May 9th on Jo’s blog.
My color palette today is red, white and blue which corresponds with the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Ribbon Club Assortment.  This is a very versatile and bold color palette and I think it works for just about any summer occasion.  I love how it looks on this birthday card.

I created my blue background paper and the papers I used for my flowers and butterfly using distress inks and distress oxide inks.  I used just about all the reds, blues and greens to create the papers.  I cut and shaped my flowers from the Floral Bouquet Kit from Cheery Lynn Designs using a foam pad and stylus and added the foliage and flowers to the lower left corner building from the bottom up starting with the foliage.  The flower centers are 10 and 14mm Half Pearls from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the May Ribbon Club Assortment.  You can see a third red patterned satin ribbon peeking out beneath the flowers and butterfly that I wrapped around the center of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop.
