The One That Wasn't Chosen

20 days??!?  I can't believe I wasn't able to post for 20 days.  Real life sure gets in the way of craftiness.  But that doesn't mean I have neglected my planet.  I have been busy with some projects actually.  Just didn't have the time to share them online.  I have had some fun hauls also, even though I promised not to buy any more craft stuff.  But I how can you resist some really good deals, right?

I am proud to say though, that most of the house is clean.  Yeah!  My planet was too, until I started working on this latest project.  It's a set of birthday party invitations for a special girl who just turned eight.  Her name is Brooklyn and she loves horses.  When I was asked to make her invitations, I already knew what stamp to use.

When I make birthday invitations, I try to make them as simple and clean as possible.  I also don't put too many layers, taking into consideration the possibility of the invitations being mailed.

I originally made two designs.  The card I will share with you today is the one that was not picked, which I converted into a birthday card to give to Brooklyn.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Georgia Pacific, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Unity, Stampin' Up
ink:  Tsukineko
tools:  Cuttlebug, Spellbinders
embellishment:  rhinestones
misc.:  Ranger embossing power
adhesive:  Scotch, mounting tape

As for the invitations, I just finished the first prototype last night.  And if that passes quality inspection, I will be making 30 of them.  I can't wait!  My last big project was the wedding invitations I made for my best friend's wedding last year (click here to see).
Well, that's it for now.  'Til next blog!
