Sweet Spring Happy Birthday Card for RRR

Hello all you lovers of fabulous ribbon! I'm popping in today to share a sweet spring birthday card for Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I have a confession to make: I love polka dots! There's something about them that just makes me feel happy! So when I found the yummy Organza Polka Dot Ribbon Assortment I knew I had to have it.

It's like a happy little spring rainbow!
I used the light pink in this card:

It's the perfect touch on that bitty envelope and tag. This cutaway card features images from the G45 Botanical Tea collection. These springtime colors are a balm to the winter weary soul! I created a 7" x 5" top opening cutaway card from robin's egg blue cardstock, topped it with a pretty Spellbinder's die cut and arranged a little collage. I love the ribbon border on the bottom of the card! I used the blue/lavender butterfly grosgrain ribbon from this month's Ribbon Club Assortment.

I secured it to the inside panel of the card using Scor-Tape. This is a very simple card design, and the ribbon adds just the right touch.

The fun thing about adding ribbon to the bottom of a cutaway card is that you get double duty from it. When you open the card...

It's on the inside! I added another little bit to the top of the stamped sentiment. And I love this saying for a birthday card. When my Great-Grandmother died, we found a whole cedar chest full of "nice sheets," nightgowns, and hosiery that had never been worn. She was keeping them for a special occasion. I'm convinced that every day we're alive is a special occasion, so we might as well use up the "good stuff."

Thanks for stopping by. I hope I managed to introduce you to some beautiful ribbons and fun ways to use them. If so, then I'm happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers!
