Congratulations on Your Engagement!

Hello ribbon lovers.  I hope you are all enjoying the January Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I love pink, so I’m in heaven this month.

My niece got engaged in December and I’m so excited for her.  I decided to honor the occasion with a pretty floral engagement card and this pretty new Tallulah Frill Layering frame die from the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection from Spellbinders was perfect for an engagement card along with some pretty Mulberry Paper Roses and a gorgeous pink bow.

What better reason to pull out the Mulberry Paper Roses than an engagement card and I had the perfect sentiment in a stamp set from Inspired by Stamping.
I topped the card off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the January Ribbon Club Assortment.  This assortment is themed for Valentines Day, but all the ribbons work perfectly well for other occasions too.  When is pink not a great color option?!!  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment.

    1. Thanks so much Vicki. You are so sweet to say that. It’s interesting that I know next to NOTHING about photography! I had an online course that I purchased and never finished, but I picked up a few tips. I have a Canon Rebel T3 EOS that I purchased years ago in a warehouse club store which is great, but I think the real help is the lens. The one I have is for close up photos and the lens says EF 50mm 1:1.4. I have NO idea what that means, but according to the class I started taking, it’s meant for close up photography. I also have the camera set to AV, but not sure what that even does any more. It just works and I don’t mess with it. 🙂 The lens was pretty pricey, but it really did make a difference. If you want a recommendation for a basic photography online class, I can see which one I got. It was good, I just never had the time to finish it…. So much to do, so little time!!
