The Ribbon Reel #27!

 Welcome friends to The Ribbon Reel #27 - 'Pretty Muted Pastels'!  We are to be inspired by this photo for our new challenge and create a card or project using the pastel colors from the picture and include blue, ribbon/lace/twine and a button!

 I used the current Mojo Monday sketch to begin the design of my card ... and I decided to think outside the box.  I figured most everyone would be using patterned papers cut into small squares for a literal interpretation of the sketch.  I decided to dig into my Ribbon Reel Shop treasure basket and create an out-of-the-box grid pattern with some pretty May Arts Light Blue Loop Trim!

I made a pretty bow using some Pink and Blue Seam Binding and added a lovely  Cornflower Blue Gardenia Blossom to the nosegay!

I included a pretty butterfly with sewing pin antennae and a pretty little tag tied on with a button and Pink Button Twine.

Please be sure to hop on over to check out the beautiful inspiration from the rest of the teamies and then I hope you'll have time to give our 'Pretty Muted Pastels' challenge a try this week for your chance to win the awesome prize package from The Ribbon Reel Shop!
