Pink and Black Bridal Chandelier

Welcome, and Happy Monday!  I've got a bridal shower card to share today, so let's get right to it:


This black flocked paper from Stampin' Up! (um, pretty much all the SU papers I have are retired.) still thrills me.  I love that you can touch it and it has dimension.  It makes a bold, dramatic statement, so that was my starting point.  A chandelier (Paris / Inspired By Stamping) has the same effect, so paired them together.  The sentiment, stamped in two parts, is from Papertrey Ink's Happily Ever After.


I remember in maybe 9th grade, I bought myself a pink and black peplum blouse.  Boy, I thought I looked so sophisticated!  It might have been from The Limited, back when that store was relatively new.  Whenever I needed to feel good about myself, that was the shirt I'd wear.

Thanks so much for dropping by today.  =D
