Really Reasonable Ribbon July Blog Hop


Welcome! The July 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 July Ribbon Club. It's another hot, summer-time color combo! This one is called "Citrus Assortment"! 


These colors are way outside my comfort zone. They are bright, hot, and saturated. I am more of a muted, neutrals, red, and tan sort of girl. But, I am up for the challenge!


I had the new Graphic 45 Bohemian Bazaar papers on my desk, and realized they matched the hot colors of the ribbon! Happy day! I also had a been playing with banners for another project, and well....this is what happened!  



I used the yellow and green ribbon from the July Ribbon Club to make my bows. Plus, I used a few bits of the orange dot grosgrain on the banners. 

I had just purchased the green and yellow solid baker's twine last month from RRR, so I used some of that, too. The buttons are from Buttons Galore and they are in the RRR store, HERE. I think I used buttons from Key Lime Pie and Lemon Tart. (Great color names!) 

Enjoy the hop! Make sure to leave a comment! I love your comments!

I really like your card. The polka dot background paper draws your eye but the ribbon in the upper corner is the eye catcher! Really cheery!
