Baby Shower Invite

Happy Monday to everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog!
Today's creation is one I have been working on for a few's not a super difficult creation but I kept walking away from it or getting distracted over the weekend so it took a bit longer to complete than what it really should have...oh well!  lol :)
I tried my hand at stitching...not machine stitching but hand stitching...probably not as pretty as it would have been using my sewing machine, but I still like the effect it has on this project.
Isn't that just so adorable!!!  When I won the challenge over at Crafter's Cafe, I was able to choose 3 images from The Stamping Boutique.  Well all 3 were fairies because they were just so cute!  But when I saw this one, I knew I just had to have it!
The image and frame around it are cut from my Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge.  I colored the image with my pencils...nothing fancy :)  I cut out some small circles and made little calla lilies, then placed them around one of my pink roses.
Then it was on to the inside!
The invite part isn't anything fancy.  It's the same frame shape as the image on the front.  I cut a couple slits in the top and made a bow with the black and pink ribbon that I used on the front.  I just love it!
I will have to keep playing with the stitching thing, maybe with my machine next time :)
And I think I am going to go back and add some glitter to the front of this creation...I was so excited to share it with you that I kind of skipped that step :)
