Give Thanks

Hello ribbon lovers and Happy Saturday!  
Today my card uses some of the unsung heroes from Really Reasonable Ribbon for embellishing Autumn themed cards.
I've used Natural Mesh Ribbon across the center of the card under the sentiment.  The ivory color would work as well.  The ribbon is really strings of fibers which are held together with a thin monofilament.  I simply unraveled the monofilament until the strands were loose up to the edge of the sentiment panel.  This gives the look of adding several strands of string, evenly spaced beneath the sentiment panel without the hassle!
This rustic bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0 in less than a minute.  Really!!  I just figure eight wrapped the Cocoa Jute String around the pegs until I had 4 loops on each side.  When tying my knot I wrapped the center string around two extra times to make a wider center for the bow.  That's it.  To see a video tutorial for a similar bow, please click HERE.
It's fun to experiment with unique ribbons and trims.  What are your favorite styles from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store?
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on the other products used in my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.
