Good Times

Hello friends!  Karen here today.  If this card doesn't take you back to a sweet, innocent place in your childhood; I don't know what would.  Well, I guess that is if you grew up in the same era as I did.  Our school books contained the most darling illustrations and images.  That's why I've always been drawn to these vintage looking products.  I have lots of this particular company's papers, stickers, etc.; but they're out of business now so I cherish the few bins of it that I have left in my precious stash.
AND....when using my most cherished products from my coveted stash, there's no better way to adorn them than by using some of the FABULOUS products you'll find at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Just look at how these few little extra touches here and there jazzed up my little nostalgic card.  I attached the cardstock, woodgrain patterned paper and blue gingham patterned paper using Scor-Tape.  I also added a few small journalling/sentiment stickers.
I used a journalling card (with the bears and sentiment) as the focal point.  Yet, I knew this card needed and deserved a beautiful bow.  It started with a bow tied using Red Wrinkle RibbonSolid Bluebonnet Baker's TwineYellow Burlap String, Navy Burlap String and Green Burlap String.  I also tucked in several Double Head Stamens, a Mulberry Leave, and I topped it off with a pretty little Yellow Cosmo Daisy.  I also used lots of darling Green Mulberry Leaves and Multi-Color Mulberry Leaves that I spread about and topped with red prills to represent berries.
There are SO many great products at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It starts with RIBBONS and trims, but it really is SO much more than just the oodles and oodles of wonderful ribbons and trims.  You can see how I always seem to find the perfect touches for every project at RRR.  They have every color of every lovely bobbit you can imagine.  They're sure to have exactly what you need for your next project.  Why not treat yourself today?
