Hi Lovely Bloggers...
My youngest daughter made a request earlier this week for a card that she could take to a bridal shower... and she wanted it to be in milk/chocolate colours (long story!) - sooooo, as we don't really have bridal showers here in the UK - I had to get my thinking cap on and do a bit of research!!
I decided to use an MFT Dienamics Umbrella die that I've used before for a baby shower - and I used lots of small flower punches and dies for the infill on the shape. I used pearls for the centres of each flower too. Then I thought it was too bare and needed decorating around the edge - so I set about hand colouring some white flower trim that I found in my stash. I think I'm happy with the result! I can't wait to hear what the bride-to-be thinks!
The bridal shower my daughter is going to is in Toronto - so the card is currently winging it's way across the Atlantic in her luggage. She's stopping off in San Diego first to meet up with another friend for a few days.. so it's going to be a well travelled card!
And my eldest daughter is due back this weekend from her holidays - she and her boyfriend have been cycling from Switzerland to Holland along the Rhine.. then they're getting the ferry back to Yorkshire on Monday. I think they've done very well as they've camped each night.. I have to say I prefer my transport with four wheels and then I like a proper bed at night!!
Big hugs and Happy Crafting
