A Bridal Shower Invitation

What you see here is a bridal invitation for my nephew and his new bride in their wedding colors. The odd typing on the right is blurred out as to not show personal information here online. This

This was made using a stamp from SU, not sure what set, it was borrowed from Dawn and we used the color turquoise and coral for stamping and the card stock as well as the coloring of the brides flowers. I used crystal effects to paint the dress and give it a sparkle, used a brad punch to punch the small holes around the hem of her dress and SU's water color pencils and blender pen to color her hair. I added a sheer white ribbon in a white eyelet on the insert that you pull out with the information. We enclosed a 3x5 index card for a recipe.

To the right is what I made for handouts for the guests at the shower, we picked up the paper gift bags at the dollar store, stamped the same bride on the front as we used on the invitations, stuffed with tulle and filled with Hershey Kisses and mints then tied double silver wedding bands to hold the handles closed. These were a huge hit.
I hope you enjoy!
