Spring Fling Invite

Well the weather here today has been quite eventful. Snow, rain, sleet, ice and now snow!Yikes and yesterday it was 50 degrees. It hasn't stopped me from crafting.

Today I made a spring invitation from Tilda to Edwin. I found these cool postcards on Monday when I went shopping. I used Tilda as a butterfly;she was colored with Copic Markers B63, B66, B69, E000, E00, E11, E31, E35, YR20, G21, G40, G00, C01, and C03. I added silver glitter pen to her cap and wings.

The Viola paper and polka dot paper is from Memory Box. I used my new Memory Box Dies Woodrow Rosette and Elegant Scrollwork. The sentiment "You're Invited" was placed in the upper corner.

On the back for the postcard; I used stamp that is a stamp. Used Copics to color the butterflies. Lastly, I hand wrote the invitation to Edwin. Here is a view of the back of the card.

Let me know if you think Edwin will accept Tilda's invitation. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
