Birthday invitations

It's that Kanban dress again - did I tell you that I love it? My friend asked me to make some invitations for her daughters 18th birthday - shes having a 50s/Grease theme. So the most appropriate stamp I have is the THE DRESS, luckily I'd just purchased these ticket stamps from LOTV. Terri loves pink so I couldn't make her party invites in any other colour. I kept it simple because I had 40 to make but I'm pleased with the design and more importantly so is she. I passed the dresses through a flower Sizzix embossing folder just to give them a little extra presence. The circular sentiment is also from a new release by LOTV - luckily their circular stamps fit my 1 1/4 inch Stampin up punch almost perfectly. Unfortunately I picked one out of the box that I hadn't quite stamped straight but C'est la vie. Just got to sort myself out a 50s costume in time for the party - I've got my net petticoats at the ready.
