Celebrate Today

I am going to a bridal shower today for my Sister-in-Law so I wanted to make an extra special card.  I am so over the moon with all the doily stuff lately!  So for this card I knew what I wanted the theme to be!  I used both PTI's Delightful Doilies and My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose Gertie "Girly" Stamps (I saved you the hassle of googling the stamps and linked them for you...not that I'm trying to enable you or anything, heehee!! Did I mention they are CHEAP...like less than $6 cheap??). 


The color scheme for the shower is Scarlet Jewel, Hawaiian Shores & a touch of yellow (I know since I made & designed the shower invites too...I'll share those at a later date!!).   The stamps on the dies are from PTI's set and the stamps on the card base and the envelope are from My Mind's Eye.  Pretty stamps huh!?


Can you see all that glitter?  You can't miss it at my house because when I was gently pouring it the lid came off and I had the hugest pile of glitter I've ever seen!  I have it ALL over me now...but at least I sparkle! :)  The centers of the doilies on the card base all have glitter and the red doily die also has glitter on each circle.  It is so pretty in real life!


I hope that Anne likes it!  I also took a clothespin (which I forgot to photograph), covered it with paper from My Mind's Eye that matches these doilies (YES, there is matching paper too...be still my heart!!) and poured glitter all over it.  I'm going to attach it to the gift bag and hang the envelope from it if it isn't too heavy.

I hope you all have a great weekend!! Take care and thanks for stopping by!

  5. Jen--I keep accidentally finding comments from you on my blog!!! Had to come back over and say, THANKS! I love this!! Just saw those stamps a couple weeks ago as a prize package somewhere and loved them! I never dreamed they would be so cheap. I remember thinking how nice they would look with the new PTI things. I was not able to get the doily dies before they were gone!! KNEW that would happen!! Anyway, LOVE this, and really appreciate your visits!!
