Love is in the Air!

Wow, it's been a busy week for me!  On top of the regular busy, several of my friends got engaged, married or are having an anniversary.  That means lots of papercrafting for me!  Here is an invitation set I made for my friend for her 3 year anniversary party:

The invitations are 4"x12" scored at 4" & 8" (I cut each end of the base invitation-the eggplant layer- about 1/8" so it would close better.  The mat is 3 1/2" x 3 1/2", the whisper white layer is 3x3.

The Fancy Favor bag was CASEd from fellow Stampin Up! demonstrator Kari Metzger.

Stamps:  Bliss (2011 Sale-A-Bration)
Cardstock:  Elegant Eggplant (textured), Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Whisper White (Textured)
Accessories:  Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Fancy Favor Bigz Die, Scallop Oval Punch, 1 3/8" x 5/8" oval punch, 1 3/4" x 7/8" oval punch, Basic Gray taffeta ribbon (retired), concord crush ribbon

Since I already had the fancy favor die on my craft table, I decided to use it to make a "congratulations" gift for my friend who is getting married.  (Shhhh, don't tell her, but I made it so I would possibly get hired to make the favors for the wedding).  The favors are "conveniently in the colors of her wedding:

The chocolates are Lindt's milk, white and dark.  They match her colors perfectly!

Ok, now I'm off to make more cute stuff!
