Hi everyone and welcome to the April Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. This month Really Reasonable Ribbon is teaming up with our friends from The Rubber Cafe.  If you arrived here from Irit’s Blog, then you are on the right track. If you just happened along, be sure to hop back to The Rubber Cafe Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss a thing.
This month we are showcasing the RRR April Ribbon Club Assortment 

along with rubber stamps from The Rubber Cafe.  I selected the Floral Background stamp from The Rubber Cafe and I just LOVE it!! 
I just love background stamps because they are so versatile.  I have two different cards I made using my stamp.
On my first card I used the stamp for my background.  I cut my white background paper in strips and used a couple of different colors of ink to make it more fun.   I created a quick ribbon flower using a 1″ XL Glue Dot and the pretty blue diamond satin ribbon from the April Ribbon Club Assortment.  The flower center is the pink ribbon tied in a double knot and hot glued to the middle of the flower.  I finished it off with a bow using the yellow ribbons.  This was a super-quick card.
Challenges for this card:
Mojo Monday #236 – sketch challenge
One Stop Craft Challenge #177 – Pastel and Die Cuts
For my second card I used the Floral Background stamp as my focal point.  I created a bow with the light orchid shimmer satin using my Bow Easy Tool and I ran a piece of the lavender vertical stripe grosgrain across the middle of the card.

Challenges for this card:
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge – PWC201 Use 2 different design papers
Allsorts Challenge week 149 Colour Bingo – I have pearls, stripes and pink
One Stop Craft Challenge #177 – Pastel and Die Cuts
