Hi friends.  I’m swinging in today with a pretty birthday card featuring ribbon and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon that I made for my sister-in-law who has been a super support to me these last couple of years.  Don’t know what I would have done without her!   Her birthday is today and I hope she’s having a fabulous day!

I used the color palette of gray and yellow from the April Ribbon Club Assortment which you can still grab through the end of May with the Ribbon Club Special Offer for US residents.   

Not a member yet? 

The April & May Ribbon Club Assortments contain 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon each.  Every 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’m feeling a bit rusty since I haven’t really been crafting for a bit.  I went pretty basic and pulled out my beloved distress inks for the background.  Love the look of distress ink backgrounds!

I love to add some pretty Mulberry Flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon to my creations when I can because they are just so pretty and they are a quick and inexpensive way to add a pretty finishing touch.

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the April Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
