Birthday Invitations

Cor it's another scorcher today here. We've had an afternoon walk to the park to feed the ducks, eat lollies and watch the boys terrorise the play area to wear them out! I haven't done any crafting today as it's far too nice to be indoors (pre hay fever ruins summer for me!) so I'm sharing an earlier make. My Step Mum asked me to design her 70th Birthday invitations as she's having a bit of a do later on this year. The theme needed to be white and gold and these are the variations I've come up with, the first is my favourite:



I've used the Elegant Bouquet Embossing folder, Schoolbook Serif Numbers, sentiment from the hostess level one set Afterthoughts and some Daffodil Delight ribbon:


The numbers and sentiment have been stamped with Versamark ink, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heated with the heat gun to create the metallic look.


Here are the other three versions, would love to know which you prefer. Version two:


Version three:

And version four:


I hope Jackie likes at least one of them!
