LilyBean just celebrated her fifth birthday (gasp!), and leave it to me to go overboard on the party planning... shocking right? ;) i've got over 100 images to sort through before i can do a proper post documenting the chaos, but for now here's a peek at the invitations.
The fairy image is a quick sketch of LilyKate in her Tinkerbell costume, and the floral pattern is adapted from some old designs i had on hand. After printing the invitation I covered the edges in pink "fairy dust" (aka glitter. i highly recommend the Doodlebug variety!). To complete the look, i broke out my trusty Cricut machine and cut two sizes of butterflies (using the Home Accents cartridge), which i layered and tied to the invitation with ribbon. The mini fairy sized invites were then slid into small vellum envelopes. voila, the mood was set!
