50 Invitations

ooo I am a little excited as I can now show you the invites I have had made for a few weeks
I have been waiting for the lady to pick them up..she came yesterday so
here are just a few pics...lol

 Background inked and blended
I decided to do three colours and not just blue as I had originally planned
 Then I added a rose in black which took me a while..lol
not as long as the blending did though
 Then I inked the word Invitation again in black, which took even longer
 Here they are all finished... I added ribbon to each before layering
with matching coloured card stock
 Close up Blue
 Yellow's with a hint of green
 and here is the Green... Not sure if you can see but I also added stickles to the roses
To make them a little more girly!!!
 Here is a side view.. you can see the printed date and time etc.
Envelopes to match... I was going to colour the roses, but decided black looked fine

 Here is a matching guest list.. this was done as an extra.. to help keep track of who's invited !!
 Here I have bundled them up into fives to make it easier
I also did the same with the envelopes.

She loved them so much so..she said I may have to make some matching Thank you notes for after the party
I did enjoy making them... just wish  me mojo would come back !!


I am entering these into the following
Allsorts Challenge - Free and Easy
Make it Monday - Linky Party 
Papertake Weekly - Sketch
