Every Act of Kindness...

Hi ribbon lovers.  Bonnie here today with a pretty card using ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
My beautiful image and sentiment is from Graciellie Design and I colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  I also realize that I need to shop around for a colored pencil class which I will be doing really soon.  Do you have any recommendations for a really good online class?
Anyway, I started out thinking I was going to use the October Ribbon Club Assortment for the embellishments, but I ended up adding a pink ribbon.  Yes, the October assortment is Christmas themed, but you can use it for anything you want!

Not a member yet??
The October assortment is a Christmas themed collection of ribbon featuring 9 styles and a total of 17 yard of ribbon and trim.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon assortment.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbons.

So, just because October is a Christmas themed assortment, it doesn't mean that's all it's good for!
I planned on using the red diamond satin ribbon for the top of my bow which would coordinate with the thin red layer, but when I looked at it, the card said 'No - Go with pink', so that's what I ended up doing.  The greens are from the assortment and of course if you have been a member of Ribbon Club for a while, you can hit your stash and find the perfect pink ribbon too.  :)

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using 5/8" Sherbet Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Forest Green Taffeta Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center is adorned with a Vintage Flower Shaped Rhinestone.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on the other products used on my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.
