You're Invited & Blog Hop Comment Winner

Happy Saturday everyone and thanks for visiting me today. Before I'm going to show you my card today I like to thank all of you for participating in our Belles 'n Whistles Blog Hop, yay what great fun that was! And now I like to announce  the lucky winner of  the brand new 'A-Merry-Go stamp! Summer is so kind and donated a stamp to each DT, so we can randomly choose a winner from all  blog hop entries. YAY isn't that fantastic? I used random.org to draw my winner (fyi, i did not count the comments left by my fellow  BnW DT sisters) and the lucky girl is: Ilona  Congratulations sweetie :-) Your prize will be on it's way to you very soon! :-) 

Now onto my card for today. This is one of 14 invitations I made to order. I used this flower stamp from Magnolia and stamped onto iridescent cryogen white paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored it using Copics and added Stickles Stardust for some glitz. Sentiment stamp is from a clear stamps set from Fiskars. DP is from Basic Grey and CS from Best Occasions.

I also stamped the flower on each envelope to match the card.

The little butterfly was punched out using a EK Success punch.

The pearl dots were made using my Viva Decor Pen.

The inside I decorated with a stamped butterfly image (Magnolia) and colored it with Copics.
On the right side are all the invitation details (blemished for privacy reasons)

Copics used:
R 000, R20, R22
Y000, Y02
G20, G24

Have a great weekend!

  7. Hi Iris,

    WOW - ich bin sooooo überrascht und freue mich noch viel viel mehr :o)
    Vielen lieben Dank *knuddel*

    Deine Karte finde ich auch total faszinierend - da denkt man öfter mal, wofür man die verschiedensten Magnolia-Stempel brauchen kann, setzt die Motive drauf - eine Sitzgelegenheit zum alleinigen Hauptmotiv zu machen muss man erst mal drauf kommen.
    Rundum gelungen - große Klasse!!!

    Liebe Grüße

  8. This card is lovely from the inside to the outside. So beautiful!!!!
