FYI: I'll have the three winners for my 5th Blogoversary Blog Candy at the bottom of this post!

Introducing.....

The new Happily Ever After set (a perfect companion set for their new set Summer Blossoms), is a pint-sized sentiment set that packs some punch when it comes to wishing "The Happy Couple" well! Use it for Anniversary wishes, weddings, bridal showers or even to congratulate a newly engaged couple!

And, to make sure all your events are truly memorable, Flourishes added a do-it-yourself invitation to deck out however you wish! Baby showers, potlucks, bridal showers and more! This blank download allows you to personalize any get-together with that elegant, handmade touch! This invitation blank offers endless opportunities for entertaining in style! Click HERE to see this in the store and CLICK HERE for instructions on how to download this image after your purchase!
 


On to my creation! I actually have three to share today!


First up, I knew I wanted to combine the Happily Ever After set with the set we sneak peeked on Wednesday -- Summer Blossoms! You can see that I stamped the Happily Ever After sentiment in the center of a frame I created with the fern leaf line (made into a circular shape) and one of the floral brackets from the Summer Blossoms set! Card Tidbits! Songbird Prima Paper, Ivory Cotton Linen Ribbon, Golden Yellow Pleated Ribbon, Toffee Crunch Memento Ink, Classic Ivory Card Stock,  Copic Markers (I used the Green Grass, Dahlia, and Sunflower Collections).

Here's a close up!



Now, these next two samples are fun -- in my humble opinion and show that you can do a little or a lot and create an impact with this Invitation Blank! I used the same basic layout for both creations. For the first one, I stamped  the Summer Blossoms with Tuxedo Black Ink after printing my invite on Flourishes Classic White. I colored with Copics (Daffodil, Poppy, Spring Greens and Dahlia Collections), added some paper piercing, matted it on some Howdy Doody decorative paper and then before attaching it to my mat, wrapped and tied a ribbon with some May Arts ribbon! Ta da! 


Here's a close up of the flowers!


And... here's the CAS version! I stamped the Summer Blossoms using Memento London Fog, added some liquid pearls to the cetner of my largest flowers, edged my invite with some silver leaf pen and added some silver cording! I did mat it up on some black card stock for a little extra pop. I think this would be a great invite for a small wedding or even a silver anniversary party!


And heres a close up!
