The Open Sea

My niece is getting married in May! I am so happy for her. She sent me the cutest wedding invitation. It was a message in a bottle, partly filled with sand and exquisite little shells, then the invitation was rolled up and tied with raffia. The raffia was long enough to come out of the top of the bottle and be captured by the cork, so I could just haul out my invitation. It was all mailed in a sturdy mailing tube so arrive absolutely intact. Clever girl :) It's going to be a beach wedding.       


I just had to make a reply card that matched my niece's seascape theme. The Open Sea stamp set seemed perfect for the job.  She had chosen sand colours so I got our my Very Vanilla cardstock, and some Crumb Cake cardstock too. I embossed the background piece then mounted my stamped, sponged and heat embossed image on top. The owl punch made some cute little hearts to add, and I tied a piece of Crumb Cake netting with some gold cord and added a little bronzed fan accent.


Hope you have a fabulous day, sweet niece :) xxx
