A Bridal Shower Card

Hello - and happy stamping to you!  I am attending a bridal shower this weekend for an excited bride-to-be!  Her name is Carlyle - and her new last name will begin with an "L."  I couldn't be happier for her!  She has found a really special guy (and I think he's pretty lucky to have found Carlyle, too!) and they are tying the knot very soon and I was delighted to be invited to her bridal shower!  This card is a direct case from Becky Jensen.  I had to improvise with a Big Shot alphabet that I already had, but I love the idea of hanging a monogram down from the bow - after all, it's all about her new last name, right?  I'm happy that I kept a couple of those "Pretties Kits" from Stampin' Up!  They contain all sorts of pearls and clear jewels and a hat pin to string them on.  It came in handy for Carlyle's card and I think it's lovely!  I used all Stampin' Up! merchandise for this card.  Best wishes to you, Carlyle.  You're going to love my gift and I can't wait to give it to you!

Penny this is a fabulous card. Great idea to mas produce. The pin with pearls and the elegant ribbon with the monogrammed tag is great!!! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, both! Susan, the embossing folder is the Finial Press. I think it's one of the prettiest folders Stampin' Up! has ever offered!

Penny I had to share with you - I went on Ebay and found this folder! I got it for $8.00! So tickled! Will think of you when I use it - :)
