Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop!


Hello!  It's the thirteenth of the month which means it's time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop!  Hopefully you came here from Susan's awesome blog, but if not, then start at the beginning which is the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog! 

This month's Ribbon Club Assortment is all about black and white!  Such a fabulous collection!!!  This is what I came up with:



I thought it would be fun to stick with the black and white theme, with a pop of color:)  I stamped my background with a stamp from the PTI Text Style set, matted it with some black cs, and added some black stitching.  I used 3 of the ribbons from the July Ribbon Club Assortment~Gingham Black, Black with White Stitches, and Swiss Dots Grosgrain Black.  I really like how the different patterns look together.  Finally I added a big bloom cut from felt with my Sizzix Bigz Die Build a Flower #2 and some butterflies punched with a Martha Stewart punch. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, now head on over to Trudy's amazing blog and make sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to win your very own Ribbon Club Assortment!    Oh, and don't forget about our fabulous challenges on the 1st and 15th of each month!  Play along for more chances to win!!!  Have a wonderful day:)

Such a pretty card! You did a fabulous job lining up that text stamp - I thought it was a page from a book. That's one of those sets I hardly pull out b/c I find it too difficult.
