Crystal, my oldest daugher, had her first wedding shower this weekend. It was such a pleasure to watch her as she mingled with everyone, smiled the entire time, and graciously opened gifts. I was definitely a proud Mother. What made me even prouder was the number of other people there who looked just as proud as me - that girl has the ability to grab onto people's hearts and make them love her. What a powerful thing.
The new challenge at the Squigglefly blog involves using Ribbon in different ways (no using it to make bows) so I thought I would make a shower card for Crystal. I used The Newest The Case Study Challenge CSC130 as my inspiration. This is the last week that Teri Anderson is the Muse - sniff, sniff (I Love her work).
I used the Squigglefly Love Text by Roann Mathias to make my dp and I also used it to decorate my envelope. I just changed the color a bit to make it softer and repeated it across the page for the card. I left it unchanged for the envelope. BTW: During the entire month of March you can save 15% on all Squigglefly images by entering the code "spring15"! I made a hydrengea with my Martha Stewart punch (plus SB Circle dies, lots of glue, and some Stickles) and used some scraps of ribbon as little banners. I couldn't resist adding in a little unexpected gift card from Target. She loved it. Made her tear up - made me tear up. Good stuff. Here is the envelope (nothing fancy but it looked great on the present):
Hugz to all!
