Lady Bugs EVERYWHERE!!

I think I forgot to mention the invitations I was asked to make for a little girl turning 2. All her mom said was to make it with a lady bug theme and she needed to mail each one out. Hmmmmm, how do I not take the chance and embellish the crud out of these invites!!!! I have 2 boys...there will be no stinking ladybugs anywhere around them.

Problem: I had to make them flat so that they don't require a ton of postage. Solution: Make the invitation double as its own envie.

Problem: With the speeding ticket and round of books due, how do I not spend any more $$ and use what I have? Solution: Stamp, Stamp, Stamp!!!

Problem: Can't use a ton of bling. Solution: Yeah RIGHT!!!! This is my time to shine! I used the Gelly Roll glitter pen and smaller jewels.

TaaaaaDaaaaaa!!!! What you don't see (for privacy) is the missing piece of vellum that had the party information printed on it and Fancy Scallop edge punch from Martha Stewart on the bottom. This piece of vellum was place in the middle panel under the big ladybug and 2 small flowers.
She seemed very happy with all 18 of them. I had a blast with all of the challenges.

Got to go get sleep for tomorrow!
Love,
Carrie
