Hi everyone! In the UK we call our bachelorette parties "hen parties", so for today's card I made a hen party invitation card! I used a couple of cute chicks from Hard Boiled, together with the large "party" word stamp from Bubbly.  At hen parties, the bride-to-be usually wears a costume bridal veil and a driver's learner plate (L-plate), so I added both to the "bridal" hen, hehe!  The word "hen" and the "L" of the L-plate were stamped using Alphabet Soup. A fairly quick card to make! The only time consuming bit was gluing the piece of netted ribbon to represent a bridal veil - it didn't want to stick, lol!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

- Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge: Animals
- Addicted to Stamps #136: Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a great rest of the week!
