Cherry Blossom Bridal Shower - Invitations

Hello everyone!  I wanted to share the  invitations I've been working on for my best friend's bridal shower. Lots and lots of coloring but I'm really happy with them. The image is from A Day For Daisies, "cherry blossom cluster" (find it here) and I believe it was part of last week's release.  I designed the invite using MS home publishing software --oh yes, it's super old but I've been using it for so long, that it's totally my go-to program for invitations and especially when I have lots of them to do :)

I printed them on Cryogen white cardstock from Paper Temptress (here) which is perfect since it has a slight iridescent sparkle to it; plus it's copic friendly and wonderful to color on.  I added the little gem as a nod to the solitary diamond in an engagement ring ;)  The shower is in a couple weeks and since I'm hosting it, I'll have a few more crafty things to share soon.  

Happy Crafting! <3 Lisa
