Happy Birthday Mom (in-law)!

Hello again everyone.  
Bonnie here from Really Reasonable Ribbon today to share a birthday card I created for my Mother-in-Law.  Her birthday is today.

Happy Birthday Mom!
(see, still doing well with the on-time card making!!)

I used several ribbons from our fabulous April Ribbon Club Assortment to make this card.

The April assortment is a gorgeous yellow and gray mix.  One of my all time favorites!  It contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  If you are not a member yet, sign up today and begin with this pretty mix.


I layered some ribbon from the April Ribbon Club Assortment across the middle through the sentiment and I made the gorgeous bow with my Bow-it-All Tool and added a pretty 10mm White Open Rose to the center of the bow to finish it off.

Here is a straight-on view.

Here you can see how I added a tiny bit of dimension by adding some Candi-fix Foam Pads under the sentiment.

Here is the inside with a little more ribbon across the center.  
This is a great way to use those really short ribbon pieces that you just can't bring yourself to throw out.

Thanks so much for stopping by. 
 I'll have a kitchen update on my next post.  We're getting there!
