I know, I'm running late this week for the sketch challenge. I'm planning a pasta party and that has been consuming most of my time. Perhaps you are familiar with this - but if not, families of the kids that are on the cross country team take turns getting the kids carbed up the day before the race by serving them lots of pasta and bread. This upcoming Monday is our turn to host and I am expecting between 50-60 high school boys and girls. That's alot of pasta and Gatorade!
For this week's challenge I made a fun invitation. I made this one for my 18 year old daughter who will use any excuse to throw a party! I think this is a really pretty way to present someone with an invitation that really stands out. I think with a little change of colors and papers you could use this lay out for almost anything, from a bridal shower to the actual wedding invitation. Maybe Sweet 16? How about all in black for "Over the Hill"? It's up to you.
I put little pearls on the flowers, and if you look at the close up image you can make out a teeny tiny little gold gem on that candle. I also embossed the "Save the Date" on the folder/envelope and used a small dot of velcro so it has an easy open/close.
