Fun with paper flowers!

Big news!
I'm getting a new sister-in-law!
My brother proposed to his girlfriend and they are planning to get married in a small, family ceremony on February 19th. She is an awesome photographer (check out her website) and she is very "artsy". I thought it would be fun to go pottery painting with a group of girls for a sort of bridal shower (she picks the pieces and the colors, we buy the items and paint them for her), so we will be doing that this Saturday.

These are the invitations I made (and with the paper flowers that are sprinkled around in the picture I think I may make a couple small bouquets for the table at the pottery place to make it festive).The invitations are made to open like a matchbook...just another excuse to use the great Tiny Attacher from Tim Holtz!
