Sara's Bridal Shower Favors

Today's project is the party favors I made for my daughters best friend Sara's bridal shower. Her colors are white, silver and peacock. So I took my daughter's maid of honor dress and used it to match the paper I chose. Peacock is a very hard color to figure out.
The purse is cut from Tag's, Bag's, Boxes and More Cricut Cartridge. It was cut at 8 inches on my gypsy and fits great on an 8.5 X 11 sheet of card stock. I used paper trey ink for the white and peacock color. The silver ribbon is from Wal-mart. The scalloped circle and white circle are Stamp-in Up punches. The ink I used was Jenni Bowlin Spice Tin ink, which matched the peacock color almost perfect. The sentiment is a K. Andrew Designs Stamp set called Amazing You. Click here to see all of Kristal's awesome stamps. I chose the "so sweet" stamp because it was so sweet of everyone to come and support Sara in her shower and upcoming marriage and because I took chocolate nuggets and wrapped them with monogrammed address labels to cover the sweet chocolates. I made a point of getting the plain chocolate ones because they were already wrapped in silver paper. So the colors were carried through into the goodies inside the bag.

I stamped 50 tags and everyone of them came out perfect the first time. Now that's what I call super stamps.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
God Bless

I was going to show you the card I made for my aunt Vicki today but just didn't feel like it was appropriate. I asked myself  2 questions: Would Aunt Vicki think it was funny - yes. Would I want the world to know that I did it - no. Most would have considered it funny. But as a woman who considers herself a Christian and strives to set that example in my everyday life. It's not something that I felt I could share with you all and still be true to who I am.  Especially when I know that young people look at my blog. Everything you will see me do is g-rated. Sorry for any ill feelings this may cause.
