You're Invited


Happy Sixth of the Month! What's that? You don't celebrate the sixth of every month? Well, here at Limelight, we celebrate by having our wonderfully talented design team tackle a challenge...and YOU get to reap the rewards! Today, July 6, we are bringing you invitations and party favors!
My project today features a girls' party invitation. Now, I think this invitation would be perfect for ANY little girl's (or BIG girl's!!) event...birthday, accomplishments, end of a school year, etc. I began with a Sweet Blush (PTI) base. I first added on half of a doily (got mine from Sarah Martina). I stamped "Let's Celebrate" from the March Unity store kit in Aqua Mist ink. I tucked and adhered the doily underneath a strip of Basic Grey Olivia paper. I added a strip of Olivia Ribbon Doilies across the top. These ribbon doilies are basically adhesive paper ribbon strips...pretty awesome! :) I wrapped some of my handmade wrinkle ribbon (dyed with Razzle Dazzle Berry Vibez) around the card, then wrapped some white satin ribbon and tied a bow. A Webster's Pages pink Glitter Sparkler topped off the bow. You'll notice I embellished the bottom of the doily as well. I added on one of the Olivia Small Details embellishments and some Silver Rhinestones.
I decided on some stick candy wrapped together for my party favors. I found these GREAT pretty and funky sticks (pretty and funky....just like the Olivia papers!!) at IT'SUGAR candy store. It's always one of our stops when we come to the beach...what a FUN place! We go when we are at Myrtle Beach, but it's a chain, so maybe there is one near you, too. I wrapped three sticks with another doily, which I think looks kinda cute. ;) I wrapped another sheet of Olivia paper around the doily, and then I embellished with another Small Detail and some more of my wrinkle ribbon.
And...TADA! That's it! Cute, fun, and SIMPLE. Hope you enjoy this project as much as I do. Be sure to click the Design Team links in my sidebar to see what the girls have up their invitin' little sleeves. ;)
