Really Reasonable Ribbon April Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon April Blog HopYou should be coming to my blog from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.) After visiting me, hop over to the spectacular Ginny's Blog next! 

Here is a peeky at the RRR April Ribbon Club Assortment
This assortment is called Aqua and Coral Mix. This is such a soft, feminine and spring-time mix! I loved the Aqua Plaid so much, that I purchased a bunch of it! To see a card I made with the plaid ribbon, click HERE.
For my Hop project this month, I used Copics to color this pretty digital stamp from Power Poppy (Vintage Easter Egg). I matched up the Copic colors with the ribbon club. Then I had the hard job of looking for paper in my stash to match the ribbons and coloring! I had to dig deep to find a 6x6 pad of paper that matched! {smile} 
I wrapped the white crochet lace (3/8") around the floral panel, and then added the Tropic Diamond Satin (3/8") over the top. I tied a large bow from the satin and glued it to the top of the ribbon stack. I wrapped the Light Coral Diamond Satin around the bottom of the colored image. I added a coral button, tied with Coral Baker's Twine.

Thanks for stopping by today! Now, hop over to
