Showers of Happiness

I've always loved the saying "Showers of Happiness". It's such a sweet saying and could be for a wedding shower or a baby shower. Either way showering happiness and best wishes to the bride or mom to be is something we all do. I have two weddings to go to this year and have two friends expecting and I made this card with them in mind.

See this "lace"? I love it! It's faux paper lace. I followed the tutorial from Suzanne at the The Paper Variety to make it. You can find the tutorial here. You will be seeing more of this paper lace, much more!

  6. Lucky you, having a couple of friends who are expecting and a few getting married! Seems I'm in that phase of life that's 'between': all babies have already come along and are growing up, and everyone's been married a while. (only one exception for us: my cousin)

    What a pretty umbrella, with the little pearls along the tips (you KNOW I love that!!). And there's that gorgeous faux lace again! Mind if I use that on a card soon? Thanks for sharing it, Jennifer!
