Wedding Update & Bridal Shower Card for my SIL

I FINALLY decided what those stinkin' boys or groomsmen if you will, are going to wear! My beautiful bridesmaids have had their dresses ($19.50 @ Old Navy) picked out for weeks! The boys tops are from Old Navy as well, they get their choice of Khakis, and the shoes are Target (so are the girls!).
Of course, you can see the bigger photo if you click it.

I think those will be perfect for our summertime country/barn wedding.

My intentions for the floral arrangements I'm hoping will look something like this, I'm actually going to just buy a butt load of flowers from a local roadside shop, and have a good friend assemble them for me. I'm also growing some massive sunflowers at the moment, so I'm hoping they will wait until June 9th or so to mature, so I can add them also!

A while back my brother's girlfriend sent me a clip of her trying it all on, and although her boots are a little different than the target boots, I like them a lot more, but apparently they were a little bit of a splurge for her also! Well, apparently I erased it from my phone, so I'll add it later! So cute though!

Anywhoo--- this weekend, is my soon to be Sister in Law's bridal shower that I am throwing for her. I wanted to make her a different card than the one I made to give them in Hawaii during the wedding. You can see that card here.

The recipe for this card is: 1 12X12 sheet of any patterned paper you'd like. (I used a heavier stock, that had a circular green pattern on it, and then cut it to 5.5"X 12". Scored it at 2" & 4".

With the other half of the card stock, I made one piece 5.5" X 6". I also 'sponged' or distressed the paper with brown ink which sort of hides the pattern, at least in the photo. I used my Once Upon A Princess Cartridge to cut the phrase 'if the crown fits' and the princess. I used my Peachy Keen Stamps for the face. The princess is cut at 4", along with all her accessories and the phrase is cut at 1.25".

There are much better directions over at Canadian Nickle Scrap'n
