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


  1. These are beautiful! I know all the other things you make will be amazing, too!

  2. While the iridescent sparkle ain't much evident in the picture, I'm pretty sure that these bridal shower invitations you made are eye-catching in real life.
