Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Team Announcement!!

Hello Friends!!
I have some Exciting News!!
I am joining the 
Design Team!!
I am so excited!!  I have been playing around with some Ribbons and Trims from Bonnie's store over the past couple weeks, and I just LOVE them!

If you have never visited Really Reasonable Ribbon, then let me tell you a little bit more about it.  Each month Bonnie (she owns RRR), holds two challenges and a blog hop!  The Design Team provides lots of fabulous inspiration!!  The challenges are on the first and 15th of the month.  One lucky winner of each challenge will receive a $10 gift certificate to the RRR store!!  She also has a blog hop on the 13th of each month.  The random winner of the blog hop wins the ribbon kit of the month!!  So many opportunities to win!!
The current challenge this month is a Halloween and Ribbon Theme!  I have created another Halloween Ornie below to play along!!  
The moon, witch and orange digital paper are from the Graphic Fairy.  The black with ivory script digital paper is one I made myself, as well as the bat template.  I used both GIMP and INKSCAPE, to create my template and off set layers.  I also used GIMP to change the color of the moon image and get rid of the background behind the sweet little witch image.
Here are some close ups below.
I inked all my edges, the orange ribbon pumpkin and striped ribbon with Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress ink.  I used pop dots to elevate my black bat from the orange bat offset.  I used the brown sugar baker's twine to spruce up my vintage buttons.  I finished off my jewelry wire hanger with an orange swirl bow and some beads!!
I used the orange swirl ribbon to create another bow, and artfully wrap it around my "Happy Halloween" text blocks.  I love the little bat charm that I added :0).
Why don't you come on over to the RRR blog check out the new Design Team, and link up to the Halloween and Ribbon challenge!!  It will be fun!!  
Maybe you will be the "Best of Show" or one of the "Top three"..or even the random winner of the $10 gift certificate!!
If you participate in the RRR Challenge and choose to follow me by email (upper left side column),  I will share with you the digital collage sheet that I used to create this Halloween Ornie for FREE!!  How is that for some extra incentive??  Here is the collage sheet below.  If you would like you can purchase the collage sheet in my Etsy for $2.50.

Just link up at really reasonable ribbon, leave me a comment below, I will use the email address you have signed up to follow me with to send you the collage sheet (with out the copyright watermark).

I have placed three orders to Really Reasonable Ribbon, and each time I received my packages in a very timely manner!!  You know how I can be....LOL...when I order something, my toddler side comes out and I want it right now!

I will officially start my term in November!!
I hope you will visit me there and play along!!
