Pretty in Pink: Shower Invitations

A little over a month ago I made another set of bridal shower invitations for friend Karri who is soon to be wed. (Exciting!) Her colors are pink and black- very classy and very feminine, just like her.
These invitations were a lot of fun to make.  The patterns in hot pink were made by painting through a stencil.  I made the stencil by cutting out designs I liked in scrapbooking papers.  Each one came out slightly different, which was pretty beautiful when you saw them all together.
The enclosed recipe card was a constant element across both of her showers- all the guests were invited to contribute a recipe to her collection, such a cute idea from one of her friends!  The little instruction flag telling the guests to write out a recipe was stuck to the card by a glue stick run along the top of the index card.  There was just enough stickiness to keep the flag in place, but not enough to prevent it being peeled away without tearing the card.  I thought that was a pretty neat innovation.
