Day 6 Catch the Bug Birthday Challenges

     We're getting down to the end of the week long, daily challenges at Catch the Bug and the theme today is a recipe: Kraft, Ribbon, and Bold Colors.  I decided on birthday party invitations this time and have made a dozen.  There's room inside for all the What, When, and Where info, all of which can be filled in by hand.

     I colored the Bugaboo image with my ProMarkers, then die cut it and the sentiment with plain oval dies from Spellbinders.  I inked the edges of each oval and mounted them onto a kraft card base (new CS and envelopes.)  I found two different ribbons in my stash, layered them together, and wrapped them around the card front.

     I added a satin bow and a gemstone butterfly for embellishment (also new stash.)  I have different colors of butterflies on the dozen invitations because I didn't have enough of one color to do them all.

  1. Great idea to use this for party invitations! It's so cute and fun with that Bugaboo image. Love the Kraft on here too.

  2. Having different colored butterflies on the invitations doesn't matter in my opinion, the cards will match but with just a slight variation. Fun concept of cards! Thanks for joining in our birthday bash at Catch the Bug!

  3. Such a great image for a party, love the colours and the design.
