One of my oldest friends (she's not that old just that we've known each other since we were 13!) is turning 40 mid August and asked me to make her Garden Party invitations with a purple / lilac and pink theme.

So here are two of them! I made 22 in total.  I hand cut the banners and they have been edged with stickles which you can just about make out.  I added emboridery thread bows to the ends - two shades of pink and two shades of lilac as I didn't have enough of one single colour.

I've printed the sentiment on the pc and added a pink half pearl plus faux stitching around the main panel.  I had to keep the card as flat as I can for posting as any bulky embellishments and it costs almost twice more to send!

The main panel is Rainbow Polkadots download from Funky Hand and the purple was in my stash so not got a clue where it came from!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
