CASEing the Shower Invite with FF131

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  I have two sweet little cards to share today; they use the sweet little sketch from Fab Friday:

I needed a bridal shower card for my soon-to-be-niece and I loved the invitation that came for it; it had beautiful roses in deep burgundy and pink shades.  (You can see the top of it under my card).  So I pulled out my Altenew Painted Flowers and a few rosy colors of ink and went to work:

Both the background DSP as well as the tag were from CTMH's Chelsea Gardens; I backed the banner in Smoky Slate just to bring it out a little.  I originally stamped three large flowers in dark, medium and light shades of pink, but ended up not using the large pink one and created a smaller pink one.  I stamped some florals directly to the DSP, the added some greenery in Pear Pizzazz and Always Artichoke and finally added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I happened to have a little scrap of already-dyed green shabby seam binding, so I added that to the top of the banner.  It's hard to see, but there is also silver thread looped under the flowers.

The inside is a combination of two sentiments stamped in Berry Burst and Smoky Slate; the "blessed" is from Technique Tuesday and the "wishing" is from Altenew as well.  I love that layered look!

Since I already had the Altenew pink rose and greenery cut, I went ahead and created another card with the same sketch, using a scrap of Pear Pizzazz DSP and some retired baker's twine, all attached to a Blushing Bride card.  The sentiment and greenery are from a recent Paper Pumpkin kit:


A couple more pictures from before the dance: 

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I ADORE this card, and your gorgeous DSPs... what a fantastic idea to CASE the invitation - they're often based on wedding colors, so I wouldn't file this idea too deeply, LeAnne! Just exquisite!

Beautiful cards. I like how you copied the invitation with those pretty flowers. Great take on the sketch too.
Have a wonderful day.

Both cards are beautiful, LeAnne! I can't pick one over the other to like better! So pretty and both have a springtime feel to them! I love the sketch too! Awww, what a wonderful picture of Cassidy & you on her special occasion! She is one lucky & cute little girl! TFS and have a great week! :)

Oh goodness is this ever PRETTY!! You've captured the essence of the invitation perfectly Leanne. The second card is extra sweet...just like the photo of you and Cassidy!

Dawn Tidd said...

Oh, wow! You did a great job CASEing the invite, LeAnne! The bride will appreciate your thoughtfulness. Those flower images are just gorgeous and you picked such pretty colors to match the invite. Cassidy looks so grown up in that pretty dress!
