The Chosen Wedding Invitation

This is the Wedding Invitation my niece and her fiance have chosen.  This is the picture of the prototype.  The final one will have a printed tag.  I don't think I'd ever have chosen purple, but I think it works really well.  The ribbon I used here was from my stash - the real one will have a white ribbon.

ATC Alphabet Swap

Can't believe we are on S already with our ATC Alphabet swap.  I thought there would be so many things to use for 'S' but when it came down to it I struggled to think of a theme.  I went for 'swirls'. I love this Hero Arts swirly stamp.  The face stamp is one I used for a card I had featured in Craft Stamper a while ago.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to stamp with.

Gorjuss Girl

Gorjuss Girl stamp from Funky Kits.  Background papers from Bo Bunny.  Punched lace - Martha Stewart.  Ribbon - Anita's.

Anyone else having trouble with Blogger and links?  I normally highlight the text (ie The Sugar Bowl) click link and paste the blog address.  Instead of posting it in my chosen text, it now just posts the link after my post :((

Here's a better picture of one of the invitations below.  This is my favourite of the samples I made, but it's not the one my niece chose.  Check back to see which was the chosen one.

Invitation Samples

I've been playing with Wedding Invitations for my niece and her fiance who are getting married this summer.  Sadly, the light had faded by the time I took most of the photos and the colours don't look right.  I'm making more samples this week.  The purple card is Prisma run through the Cuttlebug with Swirls and Swiss Dots.  The butterflies are cut with punches.
