May Arts:: Engagement Hop

The ever-so-nice, ever-so-professional, and ever-so-wonderful Ribbon Lady, aka Bethney, just recently got engaged! The Ribbonistas, aka May Arts Ribbon Design Team, have gathered together today to congratulate her with a Blog Hop!


I went classic today for my congratulations card, teaming up the amazing May Arts Ribbon with one of May Arts Partners in Crafts, Dreamweaver Stencils. I first misted silver ink over white cardstock and a stencil to create a background. I wrapped the panel with 1" Sheer Twinkle Ribbon in White (so heavenly!), tied a bow and added another bow of 3/8" Silver Sheer Metalic Ribbon. A stamped sentiment on a velum banner finished the card after the panel was adhered to a white card base.


I wish Bethney and her fiance all the happiness in the world! They certainly deserve it!


(Thank you to the wonderful Jen for putting this together for us!)
