The Ribbon Reel #49...Spring Cottage...


Hello~

Welcome to another challenge at The Ribbon Reel! I am actually the host and I would like to see you create a card or project using the inspiration photo below, using the colors PINK, YELLOW, AND AQUA, plus ribbon and flowers

Supplies from The Ribbon Reel

I don't know about you, but I am ready for spring and warmer temps. We have had a mild winter in my parts, but this girl runs on solar power! This card is inspired by all the new things Spring can bring! 

I started by piecing my patterned paper to my yellow embossed cardstock and adding to my card base.  I then added the beautiful trims.  I stamped and heat embossed a bicycle image from Hero Arts.  

Taking inspiration from the photo, I draped down my beautiful Cherry Blossom blooms on the line and added some encouraging sentiments from Paper Sweeties from the Mahalo and You Make Me Smile sets.

Here is your inspiration photo! I feel in love with it as soon as I saw it! I knew instantly I wanted to use this when it was my turn to host!
