Backyard Dwellers BBQ Invitation - CC207/CPS104

I only wish the weather could stay how it has been here in AZ this past week, year round. It has been gorgeous, breezy, warm -- perfect weather for a Backyard BBQ. As I took the kids to the park the other night, it smelled SO good outside as we walked there -- someone had fired up the grill and was making something delicious. I think that is what inspired this idea. I created an invitation to send to a friend to invite them over to enjoy some fun time, relaxation and a barbecue!

I used the layout this week from Card Positioning Systems (CPS104) and the colors were from the color challenge this week on Splitcoaststampers. I wanted to keep it simple enough to duplicate.

Stamps: Backyard Dwellers (Hanna Stamps), Tiny Talk (SU!) Paper: Summer Sun (SU!), Old Olive (SU!), Pumpkin Pie (SU!), Solar White Classic Crest (Neenah) Ink: Old Olive Classic, Summer Sun Classic, Pumpkin Pie Classic (SU!) Accessories: Scalloped and plain circle nestabilities, cuttlebug machine, dimensional dots (SU!), 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 circle punches (SU!), Large corner rounder (EK Success), paper piercing tool, pumpkin pie grosgrain (SU!), clear dew drops (The Robins Nest), sewing machine, white thread.

What a sweet card. Love the stitching and the 2 strips of ribbon. I think I should try some stitching in a project. I've never done that.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment on my blog Amanda, I truly appreciate it!
