The Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog DT Announcement


I have some exciting news today!  Recently the Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog announced that they were looking for some new design team members.  Well you know I love flowers and ribbons and bows - so of course I had to try out.    Their inspiration photos are always breath taking!  This is the inspiration photo that we were assigned to work with, and of course we had to include some ribbon or lace (no problem there !!) 

Well I kept my fingers crossed and I sweated out the wait ... and ...  I am so happy to announce I am one of the new Ribbon Reel girls!!   I hope I will find you there playing along!  There is SO much eye candy every challenge that you're sure to see something that you absolutely adore! 

Here's the card I created
I used the tea time image from Serendipity Stamps and colored it up just enough to highlight the designs on the china.  I fussy cut it and layered it on a beautiful Cheery Lynn doily and added lots of pretty ribbon and flowers.  If you are loving all that trim and flowers the Ribbon Reel is just for you!  Thanks for sharing my happy news with me!  If you'd like to meet the other ladies who will be joining the Ribbon Reel team and see their designs click here.  Have a beautiful day!

Congratulations. Of course, you are a ribbon reel girl. If not you, than who else. I know I have ordered ribbon from them because of you. This card is wonderful, as usual, and I look forward to seeing even more ribbon creations from you (if that is even possible).

Congratulations Jeanne...I knew you would get this one! No one ties a bow or comes up with great ideas with ribbons and bows like you. You always know the absolute perfect little touch to add to your cards, like the cute stick pins and the doilies. Well deserved win for you and for Ribbon Reel!
