Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut
Happy Friday to all of you ribbon lovers! it's been quite the week here at our house. so happy to see that it's Friday at last! how about you? ready for the weekend?
well let's get it started off right with a fun new challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog. it's all about pink with our theme of "Show Me the Pink!" adding ribbons and trims of course! :)
Our neighbor is expecting a new baby girl in the next few months, so it seemed the perfect time to make a card for her.
I used one of the pretty ribbons from this month's ribbon kit to make the big bow. I actually ordered more of this gorgeous 3/8" hot pink quatrefoil satin, and still only have a tiny smidge left after finishing this card. yep, time for another shopping trip! :) vintage buttons were also added, with one being tied with pink burlap string.
the card is made with a fun template from Shape EZ, papers are from the Authentique Crush collection, and the adorable little baby card is a printable from Free Pretty Things for You.
When the gorgeous flowers don't quite matchy match the papers I'm using, it's super easy to watercolor them! I took one of the white magnolias and painted it several shades of pink. so very easy and lots of fun to do. a quick hit with the heat gun causes the flowers to dry super fast if you don't feel like waiting.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you play along in the challenge with all of us! :) and have a great weekend!
