Bridal Shower Invite

I wish you could see this in real life! The designer paper is so shimmery. It is from the K-i Memories' Pop Culture series and entitled Leap Frog. I chose it for my niece's bridal shower invite because it reminds me of her. My niece has her own style- a lot glitzy, with bohemian and more retro. Needless to say- she is a living doll both inside and out; and she pulls off her uniqueness with grace and style! So if the invite seems non-traditional-you understand why that was entirely intentional.

She and her soon-to-be husband chose two shades of green for their wedding colors. His birthstone -emerald and hers- peridot. At first the invite did not even have the punched umbrella but I added it at the last minute so it would look a little like a bridal shower invite.

I also wanted something flat for mailing and something not too complicated to assemble as there were 35 invites to be sent. My hope is that it is not too simple and it is pleasing to my lovely niece!

Stamps: Sincere Salutations
Paper: Old Olive, YoYo Yellow, WW, DP- Leapfrog from the Pop Culture Series (Ki Memories)
Ink: Old olive
Accessories: Umbrella punch (MS)
