You're Pretty Darn Awesome

** 4/23/16 Winner at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge! **

Hi everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start! I'm happy to share with you today a Really Reasonable Ribbon DT inspiration project. I created a fun thank you card using the absolutely gorgeous Turquoise Checkerboard Satin Ribbon along with some tiles I've had in my stash forever. I uncovered a treasure trove of stamped images in a little box while moving and remembered most of them but unfortunately not these. If anyone recognizes these, please let me know, as I L.O.V.E. them and I'd love to give the company credit! I colored them with Gelly Roll pens which actually made them look like tiles. I layered the tiles on square stitched die cuts and then layered all four on a larger square stitched die cut. Then I cut the front of the card base off at an angle to show off the turquoise cardstock underneath.

Yep, you guessed it... I created this multi loop bow with my Bow-it-All v2.0. Love that tool! I affixed a vintage charm in the center of the bow for a little interest. So pretty!

I kept the inside fairly simple, stamping the thank you sentiment on a stitched rectangle die cut.

Happy to enter this colorful thank you card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, Stampin' Up! Island Indigo cardstock (#122923), Stampin' Up! Cajun Craze cardstock (#119684)
