Hi Girls! I hope you are all having a great week! Some of you may recognize this card from a previous post. I am re-posting it because I am thrilled that I have finished ALL 13 :) My sister's dear friend Sue, is hosting this year's Christmas party for 12 of her childhood friends. She is in her late 50's early 60's & has a dozen friends dating back to the FIRST grade! I am honored that Sue asked ME to make the invitations for such a special event! :) Sue just asked that the invitations be "rich" looking, not the traditional Christmas Greens & Reds. LOL Thanks for taking the time to look! Be Sweet!


I like the way the gold embossing powder shows up on the SU Old Olive cs.
Here is a pic of all the pieces prior to assembly :) I like the way the punched snowflakes look when they are all in a bowl together. (I changed the snowflake from the Cuttlebug die cut one to a snowflake punched with a Martha Stewart punch.)

Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Fancy Flourishes, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, SU To You & Yours, Inkadinkadoo Invitations Paper: K&Company Christmas Cheer, SU Bravo Burgandy, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Very Vanilla Ink: VersaMark, SU Not Quite Navy, Old Olive Sprinkles: Spellbinders Scalloped Ovals & Oval Nesties, Offray ribbon, SU Tag punches, generic gold cord, brads & embossing powder, Martha Stewart snowflake punch

Hey Mona--Got up early this AM, and was shocked to see me invitation. It is beautiful. The backgrounds on the card, both the gold against the green and the blue print behind the dove are great. Love the bow, and love the tree ornaments you show against it. Thanks so much for your artistic input. It means a lot to me. Love, Sue
