My 30th B-day invites

I finally got these done! I'm so excited!!!! We are having a "Guido/Guidette" Party for my 30th. I wanted the invites to be fun and kinda with a bachlorette party invite feel to them. Here is what I came up with. The crown is from Indie Art, the 30 is from Hannah Montana and I welded it to make the assembly easier. I wrote the poem and the lips are clip art.

Happy Birthday Card

So this card I made for a co-worker, however, the stamped image was colored in during my copic certification class. The teached said I had good blending. I also learned how to do the glow (blue) in the background using the colorless blender pen and saturating the paper. I also learned that using a dark grey instead of black looks much better (ladybug spots)

Finally the Wedding stuff I made :-)

I gifted these to my husband's niece for her wedding. I made I think 60-75 save the dates and just about 60 invites 2 of which I made in spanish :-) The stamp is from the Stampin Up wedding collection.
This is the front of the invite when it was closed. The ribbon/paper you just slide down to open. The WHITE or main part of the invite was one of those boxed wedding invite sets from Michaels. It was boring so I used only the main part of it and added their wedding colors. The yellow and green paper is also SU. Ribbon is from Michaels.
This is the whole set together and open. I was VERY happy with how it turned out! :-) In the pocket is a separate reception card as well as a response card.
This is the matching votive candles I made for the tables. I think I made 70 ish of these too! The stamp and punch is SU and I measured and printed their names on paper before I stamped and printed them.
(PS This pic I took with my new iphone 4! Doesn't it take awesome picture? lol)
