TRRC#49 Spring Cottage

If you love all sorts of pretty embellishments like ribbon, twine, paper flowers, buttons, and pins then  The Ribbon Reel Challenge is just for you my friend!  The Ribbon Reel Store has all sorts of gorgeous embellishments to make any ordinary project simply delicious!  They sponsor a bi monthly challenge to give you an excuse to dig those goodies out and put them to work on something extra ordinary.

The inspiration photo this week was selected by Design Team member Tammy Hobbs of Creating Somewhere Under the Sun and is called "Spring Cottage"  You are instructed to use the colors in the photo specifically Pink, Yellow and Aqua and to add some ribbon and a flower.  It literally got me day dreaming about spring - digging my bike out of the garage, those summer dresses had me putting away the sweaters, and the little picket fence had me thinking about my garden.  Everything is still grey here, but I've heard the Sandhill Cranes whirling overhead -they migrate in the spring and fall - a good sign that Spring isn't too far off.  I incorporated lots of these elements into my card.  I hope it gets you thinking of Spring and bright sunny days!
Hop on over to the rest of the design team member blogs to see what they came up with for this one.  If your a frou frou girl like me, all the eye candy will be sure to please.

Have a great day!

Simply beautiful Jeanne, I love the bunting and the fun die cut bike and picket fence.
It's been very grey and cold here too, it snowed all day yesterday, but thankfully it hasn't settled. This morning is a very hard frost, everything is white! Roll on spring!

Woke up to snow and a snow day here! I sure wish Spring would come on!
