New Anything Goes Themed Challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog

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

My card today really showcases the new Fleur de Lis Boutique Stacker A2 Frame die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I went with a clean and classic black and white color palette.
My bi-color double-loop bow was created with white and black Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and it was made on my Bow-it-All V2.0.

Life is a Joy Filled With Delightful Surprises

Hi friends.  Today I have a very feminine card to share.  Whether it’s an all occasion card or Valentine’s Day card, beautiful pink ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon will finish it off beautifully.

I created the pretty bow using the Hot Pink Taffeta Ribbon from the January Ribbon Club Assortment on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  Although this is a double-faced ribbon, I made the bow in the same manner as my bi-color double-looped bow because I wanted the double set of tails for more fullness.
To view a video tutorial on how I created this bow, please click HERE.
I used a grouping of gorgeous Mulberry Paper Roses and two pink Spiral Stamens from Wild Orchid Crafts to embellish below the sentiment.  I curled the stems around a needle tool to create the spirals and add a little more green to the card.  The mulberry flowers add a beautiful look and they are so quick and easy.  They are the perfect embellishment to coordinate with the frilly Fleur de Lis Boutique Stacker Frame die from Cheery Lynn Designs that makes up the lacy front of the card.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
Shop our Stash – 3, 2, 1 – I have 3 cottage roses, 2 wild roses and one bow.  Hope that works!
