So Shelli Creative Challenge #1 - Let's Celebrate Invitation

Shelli from SU! (I mean THE Shelli, who is Stampin' Up! lol) has started a blog called So Shelli & she has a Creative Challenge that she will be running once a month, the challenge for August is "Celebrate" (the theme for the US convention that just finished) and an idea popped into my head straight away so I had to play tonight.

I used some Real Red Gingham ribbon (don't you think Tart & Tangy and gingham ribbon are a match made in heaven? reminds me of homemade jam and picnics) I started this as a possible birthday invitation for Charlotte's birthday party (Can you believe my baby girl will be 1 in just over 2 months???), but I think that I want to make it more girly, this would be better for an older child or Kitchen Tea party maybe? I might have to try something with Berry Bliss & Pretty Princess, what do you think? Anyway here is the back of the invitation (or the front depending which way round you want it):
I've used the Summer Picnic DSP (again! are you sick of it yet? I'm not! hehe) & one of the Blooms die-cuts. I made the invitation "Long Notes" size, so it fits in a business size envelope (1/3rd of an A4)

Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Family Phrases, Family Favourites, Please Come
Ink: Real Read, Bashful Blue, Old Olive & Bold Brights SW Markers
Cardstock: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Summer Picnic DSP, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Blooms Diecuts, 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Real Red Gingham Ribbon, Fire Square Rhinestone Brads

I love this invitation! It looks fantastic. I used the summer picnic paper to cover my daughters homework book. I just love that paper and the tart and tangy stamp set.

Hi Zarna, popping by and saw this post. I have seen the strawberrys from Tart and Tangy used in a Strawberry Shortcake card, for a little Miss birthday. Just a thought.

Take care
