Communion Invitations

I'm called upon often by my friends and family to make invitations for various events. My friend, Tracy, approached me to make communion invitations for her son in May. (I forgot to post this back then!) So this is what I came up with.
I did these so long ago, so I'll try to remember what I used! The image is from Paper Inspirations and I stamped it in Faded Jeans distress ink. I added star dust stickles for some sparkle. I needed to add something to fancy this up a bit more, but since it was for a boy I was a little restricted. So I went with the piece of white ribbon and added the silver pearls. I liked the look. I used a script stamp I had and stamped the blue background for more interest. I remember trying different Cuttlebug folders, but in the end this is what looked best. We had a christening to go to yesterday, and I made this card for that occasion as well.

That's it for today! I think I'm all caught up on projects I haven't posted! I'll have more this week though! Enjoy your Monday!
