Groovy Birthday Party Invitation

Morning all. I hope you're having a relaxing weekend. I think a lot of us will probably be spending it crafting as the weather is so awful. I have lots to do but no oomph at the moment. It was the Officers' Mess Summer Ball last night and it was a good one! Maya doesn't really understand though and still had me up at 7.30 this morning. Bless her!

I've chosen this card to blog today as it was partly inspired by last night's do.

It was Western themed, so fancy dress was on my mind when I made it. The Funky Foliage stamp looked very 1960's to me and I had a "You're invited" stamp so it had to be done.

I had some fab brightly coloured paper in my stash so that gave me the colour scheme. I just stamped the foliage out in black Archival and coloured it in with Spectrum Noir pencils that matched the colours in the paper.

The insert was printed out on my computer and I repeated the stamped design at the bottom. 

Groovy baby!

I really hope I'm making sense today..................I need more coffee!!!!!!!!!!!
