For the Bachelorette

My daughter asked me to make a card for a friend's bachelorette party, and this is what I came up with. This was actually one of the hardest cards I've ever made because I cut it out by hand, and getting the round part accurate was not easy. I also generated the sentiment on the computer, so positioning the template so the words would be in the right spot took a few takes. Finally, getting the bra and panties to look exactly right took even a few more takes. But, when it finally came together I was very happy with it.

I absolutely LOVE the paper I used for the bra and panties. It's actually a fabric paper that's made in India  and is very similar to eyelet with sparkles in the holes. It was expensive though--$1.99 a sheet! I had a 20 percent discount coupon, so that helped, but lord almighty, that's a lot of money for one sheet of paper!

 I know it's hard to see, but the sentiment reads: Even though you're getting married, you'll always have your assets. My daughter came up with that, and to be honest, I'm not crazy about it. But, I was unable to come up with anything better on my own, and it's what she wanted, so I let it go.

I am indebted to Stamp Owl who provided the template I used to make the card.
