Wedding Invitation

My daughter, Sarah, is getting married in September and she wanted a simple but tasteful wedding invitation and this is what we came up with.


We used Ivory Centura Pearl card from Crafters Companion and the gold card was from my stash.  The punch and frame stamp are from Stamping Up and the wording is part of a Marion Emberson Clear wedding set.  I did the stamping with black Archival ink and used an old pad so it didn't come out too dark. The ribbon is bottle green organza from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I spent a lovely girlie weekend with Sarah when we made these invitations. She really looked after me - lots of lovely food and it was the first time I have ever tried Pimms - I really like it and it left me with a very warm fuzzy feeling!  Thanks for visiting, I hope you have nice weather today - its gorgeous here in Bournemouth.
Take care  Christine xx
