Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #76

It is time again for a Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge! The NEW Challenge is called Sizzlin' Summer Colors. Make a project with HOT summer colors , plus ribbon!

I am not sure what is going on, but I have had to do a lot of work with colors that are so far outside my "norm" that I think I may have to redefine normal!

I created a very sizzlin' project! Graphic 45 sent me a bunch of Bohemain Bazaar paper so that I could work on a make-n-take project for CHA and Scrapfest, and I have some left over. Ok, I have a lot left over! I am trying to use it while it is still new and interesting. {wink}

I created a gift card pocket on the front of the card. Oddly enough, the itunes gift card matched the colors perfectly!

Here is a view with the gift card taken out. I wrapped a bit of Hot Pink Diamond Satin around the top of the blue panel, and then I added a button tied with Blue Solid Baker's Twine.  The solid baker's twine is a bit like embroidery floss, but thicker. I love it! 

I used some Scor-tape along the bottom of the gift card pocket to attach some Turquoise Faux Canvas Ribbon to it. The pleating technique is such a simple, but lovely ribbon technique. The hot pink flower adds just the right touch!

I had to decorate the inside also! I wrapped more of the Hot Pink Diamond Satin around the inside, and added a small button and more twine.
