Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop


Hey there!  Today is the day for the May Blog Hop at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The design team and I have cooked up some beautiful projects with the new Red, White and Blue Assortment . 


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 several digital papers and images from the 2015 Patriotic Creativity Kit from our very own Ginny's PollysPaper Etsy Shop.  I matted the background paper and the vintage digital image with deep red cardstock.  I also inked all of the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.  I popped up several layers with foam tape to add dimension to the card including the banner. I created a triple loop bow with Diamond Satin Poppy Red ribbon and my Bow-It-All tool.  I then added some Mulberry flowers in blue and red as an accent to the bow.  As a final touch, I added some Stickles in diamond to the stars on the banner and the wreath in the image. 


I think this patriotic card would be perfect for both Memorial Day and the 4th of July.  I hope you enjoy it!  Now head on over to Bonnie's Blog which is the next on our hop.  Have a wonderful crafty day.
