Really Reasonable April Blog Hop


Welcome! The April Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop starts at the RRR Blog!

You should be coming to my blog from Ginny's Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.)

Here is a peeky at the RRR April Ribbon Club. Lots of "hot" colors! If you have not checked out the club before, I encourage you to do so. It is a nice bag of ribbon each month, the price is out of this world! Only $9 for US shipments! That is an awesome deal for about 14 yards of ribbon! That's 64 cents a yard! 


I had two images colored for use with this ribbon set, but I chose blues that were either too denim or too aqua and had to start over!


I ended up making this card with Graphic 45 Bird Song paper. I love the turquoise blue next to the black and other colors in the paper. 


The turquoise sheer organza with satin center ribbon is so pretty. I want to hoard it! I wrapped some of the turquoise diamond satin around the card just to "anchor" all the items I glued to the card. 


I poked around in my stash and dragged out a bunch of die cut templates that have not seen the light of day in a while (or ever) and made a little focal point on the card. I just purchase all those yummy flowers this week. So pretty.


I hope you enjoy the hop! Make sure to leave a comment! I love your comments!
