handbag invites

here are the handbag invites as promised, now that the recipient has received them to give out to all those being invited to a 50th birthday party..

the request I received was to make a handbag shape invite in green and gold, so went in search of a pretty green colour - the gold is slightly matt and not very 'yellow' or 'shiny' so it works well with the pale mossy green ..
the green card is called 'pea green' and is from Craft Creations and has green pearlescent effect on one side and smooth white on the other so needed a new blade when cutting on robo)/
the red card is from Craft Creations too and is red hammer card, the pink is from Cards and Scrapz.
the black and gold card was from stash

the flowers were made using one flower punch in one size ands using and embossing tool to make the inner petals curl, and then adding a glue gun made dew drop (coloured with gold alcohol ink) or added black pearl on the respective colours.
think thats it for now..
