Really Reasonable Ribbon April Blog Hop


Hey there!  Today is the day for the April Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The design team and I have cooked up some beautiful projects with the new Aqua and Coral Mix .


If you are following along you should have come here from Ginny's Blog.  If not, head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to start at the beginning.

For my card I used the fun and adorable stamp set from Newton's Nook called Flirty Flamingos.  I colored the Flamingo and created a beach scene for it with my Derwent Inktense Pencils.  I added Glossy Accents to the inner-tube and birds beak.  I then die cut it out with my MFT stitched rectangles dies.  I matted it onto a tag cut out from a Simon Says Stamp Tag Die.  I created the card base with aqua cardstock and patterned paper from Carta Bella's Summer Lovin Collection.  I made a band for the card with Aqua Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Select Swiss Dots Coral Rose Ribbon.  I also created a hanger for the tag from the same Swiss Dots Ribbon.  Finally, I added some aqua flat back pearls for an accent to the card.


I hope you enjoy this fun summery Birthday card. Now head on over to Bonnie's Blog which is the next on our hop. Have a wonderful crafty day!
