Surprise Bridal Shower for Ren-Yi!

Today there is a surprise bridal shower going on over on the Uniko Studio’s blog for one of their design team members! Ren-Yi is getting married this week and Bev thought it would be fun to throw a little shower for her! What fun!

I wanted to do something with chevrons, so pulled out some mini Heidi Swapp stencils & sprays (gold & teal) I have in my stash to create this card:

I combined Uniko Studio’s All Occasions Sentiments #5 and A Gift for You sets to create this design.  The main panel was die cut using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Journaling Card die.

If you have some time, it would be great if you could join in the bridal shower fun!  Bev is leaving the linky open for two weeks to give everyone plenty of time!  I’m also joining in the current Special Occasions challenge over on the Uniko Studio blog!

I’m having fun doing all things zebra today.  It is DS3’s birthday and his imaginary zebra is joining in the festivities too!  He’s the first child to have an imaginary friend and it’s a lot of fun to see what he comes up with sometimes!  This boy has a lovely sense of humor and provides our family with lots of laughter!

Have a wonderful Monday!

    Melissa, what a lovely bridal shower bard…love the colorful sprays and the sentiment in the chevron pattern…lovely! Happy birthday to your creative, darling son…it must be a character trait of the “third child,” it is the same at our house! Imaginative, funny, creative, always entertaining! Enjoy the imaginary zebras and all!
