I needed a card for an upcoming bridal shower, and this week’s Pal’s Paper Arts Inspiration Challenge was just what I needed to get started:
The bride loves green, and is quite fond of Vera Bradley, so I sort of did a mix of paisley and the above colors. I knew I had gotten some beautiful floral DP in a blog candy win, so I fussy cut them out (I love that expression!) and used them as my focal point:
The background Paisley stamp as well as the sentiment from Beautiful Beach are both retired, unfortunately. (Wish I had stamped that sentiment with my Stamp-a-ma-Jig!). The striped paper is the flip side of the floral, and I added some grosgrain ribbons to imitate the stripes on the inspiration pillow. I computer-generated the inside sentiment:
Now off to do the rest of my chores for the day! Hope it’s a blessing-filled one for you!
