Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #2

Hello Everyone and welcome to our second Challenge.

First off, thank you to each and every one of you for making our first challenge such a success. We had some absolutely beautiful pieces for the Masculine challenge and it was pretty tough to pick our top 3 projects and our winner. But every challenge has to finish and we are thrilled to announce the top 3. Each of you can proudly display our Top 3 Badge located on the left of the blog. Great Job ladies.

First Robin made an absolutely "Swell" card and the wave technique she used on the ribbon was Narly Dude.

Next we have a wonderful round card that Gloria created. Her use of color and the double ribbon was simply beautiful.

And Our last top 3 finisher is Pam. This card made us smile ear to ear. The coloring is fantastic, we loved the distressed look and the trim was the perfect catch for this beauty.

Way to go girls, your work is amazing!!!

And now for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Winner of Challenge #1 {drum roll please}

Jenny Johns wowed us all with her Gorgeous Masculine card. The looped ribbon with that added small ribbon detail on the front really made this card pop. Congratulations Jen on a Rip Roarin card. Please contact us (using the contact button above) so we can give you your prize.


Now are you all ready for Challenge #2? For the next two weeks your challenge is to create a project using ribbon as a border. The sky is the limit here and we want to see your best work. To give you some inspiration, we have some great projects from our Design Team.

First outta the gates is Gini. Love how she has used the Ric Rac Flowered Yellow ribbon on this card. Perfect for that Aquarium.

Now onto a super sweet card by Mindy. Look at how this card just pops with that border treatment. Talk about a fresh way to make the Yellow Striped Grosgrain come alive.

Cheryl always gives great inspiration with her wonderful cards. Look at the amazing gathering and those tiny flowers! This one uses the 1/2" and 1.5" Blue wrinkled ribbon.

And lastly, we have this colorful piece by Kerri. This girl sure has an eye for great color combinations and I love how she selects her ribbons so perfectly for her artwork. Lime Green Grosgrain striped leaves and a wonderful border in Plaid Ruffle Yellow, make this card POP

Now that you all have a little inspiration, show us your project using ribbon as a border. Be it an ATC, Photo Frame, Scrapbook Layout or card, or try a mixed media piece or a pendant. The world is your oyster when creating.

Make sure to leave a link to the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog on your blog entry. If you play along with us in this challenge and upload your card to a public forum, please use the code RRRC2 in your keyword or tag box, so we can find it.

You all have until June 30th at 5:00 PM CST to get your card entered. One lucky person will win a $10 Really Reasonable Ribbon Gift Certificate. We will also be picking our "I Made the RRR top 3" badge to proudly display on your blog.

So get creating and tell all your friends about our challenges.

Until next time
