I kept my card pretty clean and simple to really showcase the beautiful Dahlia 3D Flower.  I used the flower to create my background which is slightly dimensional since I pulled the petals up a bit.  This is a four-piece die set with different sizes that can be used individually – the largest for backgrounds like I did or you can layer the different sizes to create beautiful dimensional flowers.

Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop

Welcome to the May RRR Blog Hop.
If you arrived here from Cheryl’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 gorgeous collection of red, white and blue ribbons. 

Not a member yet?  JOIN TODAY and begin with this fabby assortment which contains 9 styles and 18 yards of ribbon and trim.  Each month you will receive a color or holiday themed assortment.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

My card is a pretty basic design.  I used the beautiful Lattice 3 die from Cheery Lynn Designs as the background with a blue layer and then a white mulberry paper layer before the card base.  Then I also layered my sentiment and placed it over a layered band of ribbon across the center of the card.  
The card was topped with a beautiful bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 and I edged the bottom of the sentiment with some beautiful Trellis Roses and Open Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Now for my headband of the month…
This headband was created on a 1/2″ White Plastic Headband base using two of the ribbons from the May Ribbon Club assortment.  This is the Easy Woven Ribbon headband and it really is easy.  This is a great beginner headband.

Red, White & Blue Challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi friends.  This week we have a great new Red, White & Blue themed challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog.  I hope you’ll head over and link up a project to share with us.

Fiona’s Magic Mirror die is a wonderful background type die.  Isn’t it just beautiful on this card?  I also just love the tiny Sweet William Flowers.  Just two layers of petals, gently curved upward with a 6mm adhesive pearl in the middle and a green leaf layer on the bottom.  So easy!
My bow was created using the plaid ribbon styles from the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Ribbon Club Assortment on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool.  I also used two more of the ribbons running across the center of the card under the sentiment.
This great May Ribbon Club Assortment is a beautiful Patriotic Themed assortment with 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.
Not a member yet?  JOIN TODAY and begin with this pretty assortment.  Each monthly assortment contains a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a great way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.  Treat yourself today!
