A Little Birthday Wish Card

Hi friends.  Can you even have too many birthday cards in your stash?  I think not!  I can never even catch up much less get ahead of the game.  Today I have a card for a good friend that I finished off with a gorgeous bow using my favorite ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The beautiful bow was made with Rose Bloom Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  You can view a video tutorial on how to create this bow HERE.  Isn’t it the perfect final touch to a clean and simple card?
This card features some scraps from the paper I made with the fun Color Burst pigments from Ken Oliver.  I can’t bear to throw any of this gorgeous paper away.
I added three pink 20mm Open Roses below the sentiment.  This was a quick and easy card and the bow and flowers add a fun little punch of color.  
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:

Dragonfly Birthday Wishes

Have I mentioned how in love I am with all the beautiful colors and styles of Mulberry Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts that we are now offering at Really Reasonable Ribbon?  Well, I am IN LOVE!!  If you haven’t been by to take a look lately, head on over because there are loads of new options in the store.

I pulled my color combination from the image and used purple and light turquoise.  You never have to twist my arm to use purple on a card!  I used flowers from each of the sets below to embellish my card.
These are a new offering and they are available in 8 colors.
I created my bi-color double-loop bow with grape and turquoise Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon which is my all time favorite ribbon.  The bow was made using my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool.  You can view my video tutorial on how to make this fun bow HERE.
Don’t forget about the wide range of bow sizes you can make with your Bow-it-All Tool.  You can make bows from 1/4″ all the way up to 9-3/4″ wide.  I whipped up the tiny 1/4″ bow made from purple Burlap String in seconds to top off my sentiment panel.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
