The Ribbon Reel #12!

 Hi all and welcome to this week's edition of The Ribbon Reel Challenge!  I am our host for the 12th challenge and I have chosen this gorgeous picture for inspiration ...

... and ask that you create a card or project for this challenge with NEUTRALS, ORANGE AND FLOWERS!

Keilly sent me the yummiest packet of goodies from The Ribbon Reel Shop to design with this week - jaw dropping delicious embellishments to make any project a handmade treasure!  The beautiful large bloom is a Cream Gardenia that I added a bit of gold glitter to.  The smaller paper blooms are two-tone Apricot Tea Roses and the polka dotted flower I handmade using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom Two.  The pumpkin is made from a piece of recycled cardboard that I inked with cream paint and the stem is a twig from my yard!

The pretty lace trims and fabrics are as follows:  16mm Ivory Crochet Lace, Orange Sheer Ruffle, Peach and Cream Seam Binding, 8mm Pale Yellow Satin and Orange Baker's Twine ... yummy, right??!!??

The pretty sentiment and cute little pumpkin image are from Hangin' Around - a JustRite cling set - that I stamped onto a Spellbinders Nested Pennant die cut and mounted that onto a Nested Lacey Pennant die cut.  This card was sooooo much fun to make ... lots of delicious goodness here for the eye to behold!

Be sure to visit The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to be inspired by the other teamies designs this week ... and Keilly is hosting a Design Team call over there too!  So, if you like to work with yummy trims, delicious ribbons and beautiful blooms, I hope you'll apply for the team!  Good luck to all!!

Thanks so much for visiting here with me for a bit today ... I hope you're all having a wonderful, stampy day!
