January Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Hello Friends!!
I am so excited to be participating in the
Hopefully you are visiting me from Jessie's Blog.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
That way you can see what you can win, and not miss out on any of the Design Team's fabulous creations using this month's
Really Reasonable Ribbon Assortment!!
Here is a photo of the Ribbon Assortment below!! 

Monthly Ribbon Club, Domestic
I just love all the ribbons in Bonnie's 
Sweetheart Assortment!!
When I saw this month's assortment, I thought...OOOhhhh!!  Look at all those beautiful Pinks!! 
Here is my first project!  
Quick card using my Valentine Bingo Collage Sheet.  

Pin It!
I started out with an Ivory Value Pack card base, cut out my Bingo card, then using my Perfect Layer's Ruler, I created a 1/8 inch dark pink boarder around my image.  I also used a sheet of light pink card stock that measures 1/8 of an inch smaller than my card base. I used Lots of goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbons assortment this month.  The Diamond Satin Hot Pink  ribbon across the front of my card, layered on the Mixed pink hearts, then created a triple loop bow with the Diamond Satin Hot Pink  and my Bow it all tool.  I watched Bonnie's Tutorial here.  I tucked in some of the Sally white crochet lace under the edges of my dark pink layer.  I also used a button from the Berrylicious Collection, tied with some Peppermint Baker's Twine.  I LOVE it!
In the close up above you can see the 20mm Deep Ivory Mulberry Roses  as well as some tiny pearl beads that I added.  I also added some Glitter!  I used my Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue & Ultra fine Metal Tip  to add the dots & outline my image of my card and I used #208 Fauna  for the clown's neck ruffle, pom poms and base of bingo card and  #174 Pink Cadillac, for the clown suit, and heart, and  #349 Garnet glitter for the bows, stripes on hat, shoes and dots on the edges of the card.
I also created a small tag.  It went through some phases, was torn up and redone :0)  That is how things roll in my head :0).
For this tag I used my Basic Tag shape in cream collage sheet, layered in a pink heart shaped paper doily, then the Bingo Collage sheet I used above.  Used my Perfet Layer's ruler to create a 1/8" mat around my focal with dark pink cardstock.  I inked my edges with Ranger's Lipstick distress ink.  
I used the Satin Swiss Dots ribbon, layered on the Mixed pink hearts, then piled on a Pink Cottage Rose, 20, 15, & 10mm mulberry roses and buttons from the Berrylicious Collection,   Across the bottom I used the Double Ruffle Satin Pink then layered on the Mixed Pinks Confetti Dots , then tied a simple knot with the Random Pink hearts ribbon for a bow.  
I used Cotton Candy and Peppermint Baker's Twine to tie bows in my buttons.  I have used the same glitters in the same fashion as I did above piece!
Here is a close up of the top of the tag. I used more Buttons, a Mulberry rose and tied a Big bow with the Shocking Pink Checkered Ribbon using my  Bow it all tool.
Here is a look at the back.
Another vintage style tag.
On this tag I used the Satin Swiss Dots ribbon from this month's kit which I inked with Frayed Burlap Distress well as another mulberry deep ivory rose, Natural Crochet Lace and  Cotton Candy baker's twine.
Here is a look at the tiny heart open.
Here is a look at the back.
I did a video talking about my card and tag :0)
You can see it here....
