It is time for a new challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and this time the theme is "Show me the Green." Of course you need to use some ribbon. I also have some other exciting news!!
Really Reasonable Ribbon is having a Design Team Call! I love being on the DT there, and Bonnie is super generous...so check out the call here. Just think of all the wonderful leaves trims you could get...LOL...my favorite!!
Here is my creation.
I started off with an ivory 5 by 7 card base. I then used a collage sheet that I created, cut it out, inked the pieces with Ranger's Vintage Photo. The Pink circle originally came from Gecko Galz Ephemera Days, what a FABULOUS collection!! You really need to check it out!
My sentiment goes like this: An Irish Blessing for You......May you spend your day with a Special friend, reminiscing and sharing your favorite blend. Of course I made it up, and I was feeling pretty Irish when I did it....so there ya go. You can see above how I used the small moss leaves and pink leaves, moss green satin ribbon and celery crochet lace...all from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also used some of the newsprint candies (inked with olive distress ink and vintage photo) as well as the candi fix it foam pads to elevate them.
I found the teacup at the Graphic Fairy, added a shamrock and the beautiful blue flowers from the Wild about flowers collection from Gecko Galz. I also added the green butterfly. You can see in this photo how I removed all the text from the Pink circle (Gecko galz)..and added my own "Sweet Irish Blend"....hopefully you see a theme here...LOL. I used the mint Jute to tie my little button, some more pink leaves and celery crochet lace..and you can see the pink crochet lace peeking out of the edges. I tied a darling little bow, hidden by the butterfly out of moss gingham (you know moss green is one of my favorite colors)!! Look at those sweet little text boxes I made...LOL.
Here is an upclosey of the newprint candies and the large moss leaves and small parrot green leaves...YUMMY!! Oh..and you can see part of my Sweet Irish Blend...that stuck in that circle. You can also see the background paper I created using some text and green colors.
When I tied my button, I had to pull the jute threads apart, one piece was perfect!! Ooohhh...some Pink leaves....LOL. I LOVE leaves!! Everyone thinks I love roses....which I do...but I really love leaves...funny that no one picks up on that...LOL. Every rose I have painted there is at least 3 to 5 leaves...LOL...not sure why I brought that up...LOL.
Here is a look at my collage sheet below. If you cut the pieces out as is, they will fit on a 5 by 7 card base (I did trim my card base a tad, because I didn't want too much of it showing).
Okay...so get creating friends, and link up to RRR...and don't forget to try out for the DT Call!!
Thank you for visiting!!
