My New Design Trend with Really Reasonable Ribbon

10 more days to win one of three Shapeology Dies here! 
Happy Tuesday crafty friends! I've been on a Clean And Simple kick this month.  I can't get enough of the little extras you can add to a card that are subtle and non distracting from the stamped images.  Today's clean and simple card was made with the beautiful Delicate stitched Satin Pearl pink ribbons and the August Ribbon of the Month Club "Jennifer"  lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon!  

Challenges entered: 
Craft-Dee Bowz - include bow
Bunny Zoe's Challenge - Sparkle - Button, Gems/pearl
 The image by Darcy's Diary was pencil colored in monotones with a touch of reds and some gold.  I'm a big on recycling and using every little piece of extra paper, ribbon, wooden buttons, and embellishments.  Once a year, I organize and make projects from my scrap box including today's project.  I used Bakers twine inside the buttons and a Prima key shaped paper clip for extra's.  Keeping it as simple as possible.  I'm increasing my stash of cards to send to candy winners and some of my favorite lady friends.  (wink)  Also, in case you didn't notice, it's not a shaped card but it's not 6 x 6 either!  Another kick for me this month!  Strange how my urge for creating changes every once in a while huh?
A little tip of the day with this ribbon, sometimes I can place ribbons and bows precisely where they belong and they stay perfectly!  However, sometimes, they want to lay crooked and off a bit, this is when I grab a silicone double sided dot and place it under the bow loops so they will lay straight and not distract from the point of interest.
More inspiration can be found on the Really Reasonable Ramblings blog, and 've been visiting the blogs entered in the current Really Reasonable Challenge blog and I have to say hoora! Ladies!  The inspiration projects have been stunning for the Pink and Brown challenge this time!  Keep 'em coming, I'm loving it!  And best of luck!

Charlotte Bronte
