The August Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and lace.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

I just love an autumn color palette.  It’s so beautiful!  For my card today I kept things pretty easy and let some pretty design paper do quite a bit of the work for me.

The top third of the card was created using some cream card that I created using several of the tan/brown Distress Inks.  I topped that with a die cut using the Lattice 2 die from Cheery Lynn Designs.I covered the seam where the design paper and the die cut pieces meet with two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment.  The sentiment was added over that.  I also added some pretty feathered natural mulberry paper as my bottom layer before adhering to an A2 card base.

My pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the August Ribbon Club Assortment.  I finished off the center of my bow with a pretty Antique Bronze Flower Charm.

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

This time we have an Anything Goes Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

I made this headband using a 3/4″ Plastic Headband and 3 yards of 3/8″ Random Autumn Leaves Grosgrain Ribbon and 1 yard of 3/8″ Kiwi Grosgrain Ribbon.  The kiwi green ribbon was positioned in the upper left side when beginning the weave to achieve this pattern.
