Bridal Shower Card - Croatian Twist

Here's a card for a bride-to-be who is of Croatian descent:

The paper doll on the front of the card is wearing the traditional costume of the ล estine region of Croatia. Typically women wear a red kerchief, but a bride wears a flowered headpiece. The red umbrella with stripes is also part of the folk costume worn in the ล estine region and a recognizable souvenir of Croatia's capital which is located in this region.
