Really Reasonable Ribbon July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon July Blog HopYou should be coming to my blog from Bonnie's 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!

At the end of the hop, comment on the RRR Blog post, answering the question listed, for a chance to win the July Ribbon Club Assortment shown below. (The Design Team appreciates your comments, too!)

The July Ribbon Club Assortment is a sizzlin' summer mix of orange, yellow, and green! What an eye-popping collection!
I have been paying with my Silhouette Cameo a lot lately. I have had the thing for a couple of years and rarely touch it. But, I have found so many cool things to cut with it, so I am indulging myself with a bit of cutting therapy! 

These cool flamingos are part of a set of cut files I purchased from SVGCuts called Summer Holiday Kit. I cut the ovals, the flamingos, and some of the leaves from the kit. The flowers are all fussy cut from Graphic 45 papers
The inspiration for this card came from a set of flamingo themed sentiment stamps I purchased ages ago, for some unknown reason! When Graphic 45 came out with their Lost in Paradise collection last month, and the June Ribbon Club hit my desk....kismet! 

I sponged all around my papers with various distress inks, which really makes the papers pop!
I tucked the Apple Green Sheer Organza and the Orange Plaid ribbons under the lower right flower cluster. 
 I tucked the Maize Plaid ribbon under the flower cluster in the right corner. (You can see just a bit peeking out!)
I love the layered die cuts, along with the layered fussy cut flowers, and the ribbons! Just so much color!!! Perfect for summer!  
I rubbed the inside of the card with distress ink, then splattered it with water, which makes such a cool background. I added one of the G45 ephemera cards for a message spot. 
I also added a gift card pocket to the lower inside panel.  
Thanks for joining me today! Now, hop over to Ginny's Blog to see what she has for you!
