Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #62

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge for today! The challenge is to make a project plus ribbon. That's it! ANYTHING GOES!

Letting me have a challenge like that....well, it could go south quickly, but I kept my head and made a Christmas card! That is not too crazy.

I love the NEW Charlotte Natural Crochet Lace. I purchased a bunch of it and have been adding to everything! I added a strip of it to the bottom of the card, then topped it with the 3/8" ruby red double-faced satin.

I will admit that the stars of the show are these flowers that I made from Spellbinders die cut shapes. I love to make my own flowers, but I often use pre-made due to the time it takes to make my own. However, I really wanted this card to be a stand-out, so I took the extra time. It sure paid off!

My perfect bow, made with the Bow Easy!

I added more of the lace to the inside of the card. The stamped sentiment is from Graphic 45.  Love the font!

    It paid off for sure, those flowers are beautiful. I cant decide if its because they are red, which is my favorite color, or if its because they just stand out on their own, This is a beautiful card. Can I ask? Is the little part that is up a little with the star on it, is that like a tag that is tucked in the front? It looks like it, and I just love this card, It is so Christmas!! Thanks. have a great day.

  5. Such a beautiful card. Your poinsettias are stunning, and the satin ribbon layered over the crocheted lace is just stunning! Love all those yummy distressed layers!

  6. Gorgeous card! Those poinsettias are spectacular! ♥
