Royal Tea Bridal Shower Blog Hop


Well it's finally here.... Are you as excited as I am over the Royal Wedding this Friday??? I can remember as a child watching Prince Charles & Princess Diana get married and all the excitement in the air over that very special occasion. Now it's Prince Williams turn to marry his Princess Kate ♥

I'm very excited to be a part of Ellen from Cardmonkey's Royal Tea Bridal Shower Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Jessica's blog, then you're in the right place. If you want to start at the beginning, then you'll need to hop back over to Ellen's blog.

When I think of weddings, I think of all things shinny & beautiful, so that's what inspired my card...



I used the Wedding Solutions cart along with glitter cardstock for the dress, and I also embossed the top white layer and finished it off with rhinestones. The sentiment is from Cloud Nine's Wedding collection and I added Grey satin ribbon as a final touch. I hope this card get's you excited about the Royal Wedding that will take place in just a couple of days. 

Your next stop on the hop is Holly and I know you're going to just ♥ what she's created! If you get lost along the hop, here is a full line up for you:

  9. Oh, I had no idea such a lovely gown was on the Wedding Solutions cartridge! Your design is beautiful ... let's hope Kate has an equally stunning dress. All eyes will be on her, for sure.

    And I've become a follower -- I thought I was before, I don't know how you slipped through. I must've had a bad-click day.

    Thank you for being a special part of this CardMonkey-hosted Hop!

  68. My only tips is to begin planning early, there were tons of problems running about in the final minute but it turned out terrific, it’s seriously worth planning in advance. We located a list of 99 scavenger hunt ideas and put the topics on the back of t-shirts which was the most wonderful evening! We found an excellent bridal shower checklist and created some custom post cards and t shirts created from this website:
