Liberty Dwells Here

Hello, Ribbon Friends! I am up on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today! I loved the May Ribbon Club (Patriotic Assortment) so much that I decided to make another project with some of the ribbon! There is so much ribbon in each of the Ribbon Club Assortments that I can never use it all up in one sitting, so I keep the package on my desk for a month or so to see how much of it I can consume before putting it away! 

And yes, friends, I do put my ribbon away in a timely manner! I like to have it all sorted and stashed so I can find what I need when I need it! 

For this project, I created a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card out of Flag Blue cardstock. I found some patriotic paper in my stash, which I totally forgot I had. I bought two packs of 6x6 paper a few years ago and it must have come at a time when I did not need patriotic paper, so it got shuffled into the stack and forgotten! GASP! 

I also spent some time digging around in my embossing folders! I cannot say when was the last time I had those out! The sentiment is a FREE digital stamp from Power Poppy which  you can find HERE
Now, let's talk about these scrumptious ribbons! I created a big, loopy bow out of the 5/8" Red Diamond Satin ribbon. I then made two smaller bows with the 3/8" Patriotic Strips on Satin ribbon. I used hot glue to glue all the bows together in a nifty stack!

I added the flowers and a sparkly star to the cluster. I think the red flower is perhaps an out of stock item, but you could substitute a Red Trellis Rose instead. I added one Ivory Open Rose (15mm) and one Royal Blue Open Rose (15mm) to the flower cluster.
I love this patriotic creation! With Memorial Day, Flag Day, and Independence Day coming soon, I will have lots of cards to choose from to either mail or to decorate my desk! Like I said the other day, I just have a majot "THING" for red, white, and blue! 
Thank you so much for stopping by! It has been a lot of fun reading your comments here and on social media. I really missed creating and interacting with all of you!
