DIY Miss to Mrs Bridal Shower Banner

Sorry for the little hiatus, I've been pretty busy lately! One of my best friends, Aimee, bridal shower was this past weekend.  Everything turned out great, and I couldn't be more happy for her!

I was in charge of the decorations & invites for the shower, and today I wanted to share with you the banner I created. It is a Miss to Mrs banner, and I think it turned out so cute!  I created it similar to Maycee's 1st Birthday Banner, but it's also a little different.

Her wedding colors are Purple, Silver, with pops of damask print. So I went with Purple, and Silver Damask print scrapbook paper. I cut out the purple a little bit bigger, and then cut out the silver a little bit smaller than the purple and the letters in the center. So instead of using vinyl for the letters, I cut them out of the 2nd layer of paper. After everything was cut out, I glued it all together and taped it to a piece of clear fishing string. I didn't have any ribbon on hand, so the fishing line worked perfect! I used my Sophisticated cartridge for the shapes, chandeliers, & the letters.
