You're Invited

Hi everyone! Today I'm the Designer at the Card A Day Blog and our theme this week is Invitations. 
I kind of cheated on my card today as I have no stamping.  I used my Cricut to cut out my elements even the sentiment, you can easily substitute your dies to achieve the same look.

I started with a black card base then added a bright pattern paper with the ribbon wrapped around it. The red base is added to the back of the black mat. From there I layered the green frame and white mat with the "you're invited" sentiment.  I then tied a bow and attached it to the side of the mat.

For the inside I used another piece of the dark orange card stock and a piece of white card stock. At the bottom is a 1/8" by

Tomorrow Shirley Ross is the Designer starting the week off with a new theme. Thanks for stopping by.

Cool card and I just love the color. Like the frame on that background paper and will have to give a sot on something like that. TFS
