Embellish Color Challenge- Invitations

Hey everybody! Well my kids went camping with there Grandma (Nonnie), so Chance took me out to dinner tonight. We ate at a new Mexican restaurant and it was AMAZING! We will be going back there for sure! :) We stopped by WalMart and got a couple of things, including some Beautiful flowers! Chances Mom my was a florist for many years, I sure wish she still owned her shop! I would be getting fresh flowers every week! I have to make sure they don't have pollen in them, because everyone in the house starts sneezing, gets a runny nose, or a headache. So I am very careful about that now! I will have to take a pic of them tomorrow and I wish you could smell them! :)
So now we are watching a movie and I am not really into it. It's Sherlock Holmes. So I figured I would get this card posted and crop some of my other cards I made recently while he enjoys the movie.
I made this card at the first of the week for the Embellish Color Challenge and we were to make an invitation. I am just now posting it because we had rain for like a straight week and I couldn't get a good pic until yesterday! :)
I really like how it turned out. I started off using my new stamp set from Wplus9 Designs Mehndi Medallions, it's a really pretty set. I randomly stamped the different stamps in several different colored inks. I had to print the sentiment from my computer because I didn't have a You're Invited sentiment that big and elegant. I think this invitation could really be used for any occasion.
Here is a close up. Supplies: Cardstock- (PTI) ripe alvacado, kraft , (Recollections) cream ; Stamps- (Wplus9 Designs) Mehndi Medallions , (PTI) turning a new leaf ; Ink- (Versamark) watermark, (ColorBox) gold, (Veramagic) wheat, (SU!) old olive ; Ribbon- (Offray) burgundy satin ; Other- floss, (Recollections) pearl stickers, sentiment printed from computer, corner rounder

Well I guess that's it. Have a Blessed night!
