My RRR Decorated Cast & Card

Hello everyone.  Cheryl here with my Really Reasonable Ribbon decorated cast for today....hehehehehe.  Ok most of you know that I've broken my ankle and had surgery.  Well, I was bored and decided to use all Really Reasonable Ribbon to decorate and make roses for my cast and this is what I came up with :)

I also used the Beautiful Lace(Noelle Crochet Lace) that Bonnie carries and used it on the top of the cast and the bottom. I used the green leaves for the vine and then the white double ruffled ribbon for half rosettes for below my handmade roses. I used a few different shades of Satin Pinks found Here!  I also used the satin with grosgrain edge.

Next I added some buttons and brads. I just cut off the shanks with a shank remover. My daughters both helped me add the lace and the green leaves since I couldnt do that by myself. I used the hot glue gun to add everything to my cast.

Next i wanted to share an Easel Card I made.  I also used Really Reasonable Ribbons and lace for this.

On my card I used the Satin Pink across my card and then added 2 bows and 2 handmade roses to my bows. I did another handmade rose using the same ribbon for the flower on the inside. I also used the pink lace across my card you can see it under the sweet Zoe Dress up puppy. I've added some flowers, gems, leaves, border punch, and some inky dinky drops in pink.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!
