Bridal Shower Banner

Sometimes it can be quite advantageous to have a mom (Me) that is into papercrafting.   My daughter is throwing a Bridal Shower for her best friend and asked me to make her a banner.   I love it when I get a chance to do something different.   Banners are fun and this is the first time I've made one for a Bridal Shower!

She wanted to use a pink color that was close to the color in her wedding.  I still had a few sheets of the retired Baby Pink cardstock which turned out to match perfectly.

I used the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut my banner and the letters. The letter are cut from Colonial White Cardstock.  I went for a little different shape rather than the usual 'triangle' for the banner.

I used the Artistry cricut cartridge to cut the 'stone' that is behind each letter.  These were cut from the lighter gold glitter paper from the Gold Glitter Paper (Z3076).  I found a wedding ring image on the Artfully Sent Cartridge so used this image behind the "To" in the center.  

I felt like just a little something else was needed on the banners so I stamped a flourish in Desert Sand ink.  Desert Sand is the perfect color for a gold look.  The flourish is from the set - Mr. & Mrs. (C1621).   The gold ribbon is just some ribbon I had on hand in my stash.  It worked perfectly.

Thanks for stopping by!   I think I'm getting my creative mojo back after all these weeks.   Be sure to stop by on Saturday to check out April's Stamp of the Month blog hop!
