Hello! You know you can get inspiration from anywhere! I had a really good friends Bridal shower and bachlorette party last Saturday and I created a gift basket. I bought a basket (on sale, no less from Michael's) and filled it with things from her registry. As I was putting things in, I realized that it needed a little something extra. I found these really beautiful embroidered dishtowels from Crate & Barrel. I took the motif and expanded it into a card!
I used Papertrey's Out on a Limb & the flower from Little Lady to replicate the flower design. SU! Pumpkin Pie & Summer Sun were pretty close matches to the flower colors. Cardstock is SU! Chocolate chip & Summer Sun w/PTI Spring Moss & White. To highlight the flower centers, I used markers in pumpkin pie & summer sun then went in with my Sakura Stardust pens to make them sparkly. I also carried the theme on the inside, this picture shows the "sparkliness."
