Freshly Picked "Happy Graduation" Card

 Hello everyone, and Happy Saturday to all!!!
Today I am sharing my card created for Really Reasonable Ribbon & JustRite Papercraft! On my card for today I used Beautiful Ribbon & Trim from RRR, and all dies and stamps from JustRite Papercraft! LOVE how this card turned out for today!
 Love the SWEET Floral flowers I created here! I also used Really Reasonable Ribbon Ruby Red Satin ribbon, and Moss Green Leaves. I wanted to add a bow to this, but it was covering up the paper,dies, and all the sweetness of this card, so instead I decided to tuck my bows under the dies :) hehehe that way it didn't take away from this card.

Card Measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
white card stock is cut at 5 1/2" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2"
Layer 1 - Black card stock cut at 5" x 5" then green dp is cut at 4 3/4" x 4 3/4"
Layer 2- Black cut at 4" x 4 1/2" then black polka dots cut at 3 3/4" x 4 1/4"
Layer 3- black cut at 4" x 4" then the strawberry freshly picked dp at 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" now add sewing to all
Layer 4- SENTIMENT (JustRite Congrats Card Basics CR-05068) stamped in memento black ink for the (Happy Graduation) and oval frame stamped in Kiwi Kiss SU! ink. then cut out using the Ovals from JustRite A2 Card Front Basics Dies(DIE-05047) next layer in black behind this is the JustRite Heart & Frames Dies(DIE-05016) Heart shaped one is in black, then the large frame is in white(Cut apart) for the beautiful frame behind.
Flowers- were cut out using JustRite Floral Trio One Dies(number #2)cut in a random design paper that I hardly ever use, but for flower cuts. its a cream /blueish color. I then airbrushed each flower(8 of them) with copic RV23 and then dusted with distress ink Fire Brick. Next I added a little button to the centers.
Greenery- was done using Really Reasonable Ribbons Moss Green leaves, and then adding in JustRite Papercraft die cuts from Flower Garden Dies(DI-05067) using #3, #6, #7, #8(cut in green card stock) and then distressed those in Shabby shutters distress ink.
Ribbon Loops- Really Reasonable Ribbons Satin Ruby Red ribbon, and created 2 bows, and then turned them into looped ribbon treatments for my card.
 Inside of my card I used the DCWV Freshly Picked stack, and stamped my sentiments onto it. Super Simple for an easy and quick inside fix.
