Hi everyone! It's time for another fun challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon! I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for #133 - Show Me The Pink with Ribbon or Trim! C'mon and dig into your pink stash and come play with us!

I created a fun shaker card in several different shades of pink and used the absolutely gorgeous Pearl Pink Diamond Satin Ribbon from the January Ribbon Club Assortment for my simple bow. All the ribbon in this assortment is just gorgeous! And I have to say that the diamond satin ribbon is one of my (many) favorites because all bows created with it turn out beautifully! 

I created this simple but pretty bow with my Bow-it-All v2.0. Creating beautiful bows with this amazing tool is a snap! Be sure to check out Bonnie's awesome bow tutorials on YouTube!

I used two Memory Box Stitched Heart Layers dies to create the shaker frame cut from pink glitter paper along with my We R Memory Keepers fuse tool and pouch to create a fun shaker with various shades of pink sequins inside.

And how about this adorable Paper Smooches 'Love' word die that I cut from cardstock and foam to layer over the shaker window?! Love, love, love! (No pun intended!)

For the inside, I stamped a simple Happy Anniversary sentiment on a layered panel and adhered several small stitched heart die cuts beneath it.

Happy to enter this shaker card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock, Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo cardstock (#115320), Light pink cardstock from Cricut Reds & Pinks, Light Pink Recollections Signature Glitter Paper
  • Stamps: Paper Smooches Delightful Greetings stamp set
  • Ink: Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo (#126948)
  • Dies/Punches: Memory Box Stitched Heart Layers dies, Paper Smooches Love Word 2 die
  • Accessories: RRR Pearl Pink Diamond Satin Ribbon, WRMK Fuse Tool and Pouch, Doodlebug Design Sequins (Pinks), Doodlebug Design Sprinkles Bubblegum Assortment, MISTI, white and pink foam

I hope you've found some inspiration to create a project for our Pink challenge this time!
