Dinner Party Invites

My friend Linda asked me if I could make some invitations for a dinner party that she and a friend are hosting. She wanted a single open invite, not a card and she wanted something with a little glitz and bling to it. Since she didn't need too many I was able to help her out and get them done before I left town. I am happy to report that she loved them! I didn't have a stamp that was quite what she was looking for so we started looking at some companies that have digital stamps and ended up with this one from Modern Sugar Blvd. I was glad she picked this one because it was one of my favorites too! We went to Hobby Lobby and she picked out the paper in the colors she wanted and then I went from there. The image was printed out on my Epson printer and then colored with Copics. I used a green Spica pen to color her earrings and some details on the purse. The center of each flower is a little rhinestone. I did blur out the personal information so that I would not be posting their address and phone number. Linda loved the invites and wanted to know if I was going to post them on my blog and I said yes, but that I would blur out the address and phone number, she just laughed and said it didn't matter, because it wasn't her phone! Of course she was just kidding. I hope she has a wonderful party.
