It's Grill Out Time

Hi Everyone,
Do you believe it, we just scooted into May. We are already done with 1/3 of the year. WOW!!!!!

A week from this Sunday is Mother's Day, and a lot of families are going to be cooking out. So here is a cute invitation to send out for this great party. And who else is the perfect couple to announce your great party than the BBQ Couple, and they always host a great grill party.

Since I don't have an apron die, I cut my own out of blue CS. When I added the gingham paper, I adhered it on the sides and the bottom, leaving a opening on the top for a pocket. Next I wanted to make the couple stand out so I adhered the couple to a label shape.I adhered the stamped image on the bottom half of the label and used pop dots on the top half of that stamped image.Next I just adhered the bottom half of the label to the gingham paper.  Behind the label shape is the invitation information for the BBQ party,tucked right into that pocket. What a cute party invitation and it fits into an A-2 size envelope.

Stop back tomorrow for my card based on the new theme for this weeks Art Impressions Weekly Challenge.
