Deanna's Bridal Shower Invites

Hi friends! I hope you are having a fabulous day! I'm having a really rough morning. We had yet another hard drop off at school with Brady today and I'm just bummed out. I was planning on trying to get some work done but I'm SO sad right now. I think I'll be able to get things done after we go pick him up and I get to see that he ended up having a great time at school.

Today, I'm sharing the card I made for my sister in law, Deanna, for her bridal shower invites. She's getting married next month! :) She's super sweet and I was glad to do these for her. I made about 32 of these but I forgot to photograph them all together so you get to see ONE. But you get the idea.
Deanna choose mustard, black and white for her colors and she's using a damask theme. I decided to make the invites match the colors and theme. The background was made with a Hero Arts background stamp and some Distress Ink in Scattered Straw. I used an EK Success punch for the edge and Spellbinders Labels 8 for the sentiment. I added ribbon and a gem to embellish. She wanted this pretty simple and I think I achieved both an elegant yet refined look here.

Have a great day everyone!
