The Ribbon Reel #52 - Celebrate Your Day

Hi!

It's another challenge at The Ribbon Reel and Keilly is our host and she would like you to use the colors in the inspiration photograph (below) plus Buttons, Ribbon and Twine.

I started with a Lunch Bag Kraft card base onto which I added my pieced pattern papers. I added a sweet little heart border to the top of my card. Next adding a doily created from Lunch Bag Kraft to the center. I added a Romantic Rectangle to the center as a focal backdrop for my little chipboard bird! 
I embellished this card further with some buttons, twine and a fussy bow created from 10mm MayArts Red and White Spot Red Organza ribbon. Last was adding my sentiment from Paper Sweeties You Make Me Smile sentiment set. 
Here is the delightful inspiration photo!  
I hope you have enjoyed and are inspired to create a project for The Ribbon Reel this week.  Please head over to The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to check out the gorgeous projects by the other talented ladies on The Design Team.  

Thank you Lisa, I am adding this to Little Scrap Pieces - Buttons and Bows challenge. I am also adding to Sunday {Fun}day #8 - Linky Party, Sisterhood of Crafters - Free for All

Hugs,
~Tammy~
