WMC27

Adina's second birthday is just around the corner, and with all of her jungle-themed, birthday invitations, now, safely, being in the hands of her invited guests, I thought that it was time to show them to you all.
I started this card by machine stitching a red-threaded, straight-stitch frame around the edges of a piece of yellow, polka dot, patterned paper, before adhering it to the Summer Sun, cardstock, card face.
I, then, stamped the branch and leaves images, in Crumb Cake and Summer Sun inks, on a piece of white cardstock (Not sure if the leaves change color in the jungle, but it's fall, and I couldn't resist.); spritzed around the leaves with Summer Sun ink; glittered them...
hung a stamped, in Chocolate Chip ink, monkey from the branch...
machine stitched a red-threaded, straight-stitch frame around its edges; and adhered it in the center of the stitched, patterned paper.
Finally, I stained a length of seam binding ribbon with Yellow Daisy Glimmer Mist; wrapped it around the card face, vertically, just to the left of the stamped images; tied it in a dressy bow, just above horizontal center; and embellished it with a Pure Poppy button, laced with a Baker's Twine bow, and a stamped, in Tempting Turquoise ink, on white cardstock; hand cut; and framed, with Summer Sun cardstock, "you're invited" sentiment.
Jenny, over at Wee Memories, provided me with the perfect opportunity to unveil this cutie with her Celebrate Good Times Challenge #27, to make a project in celebration of a birthday, anniversary, new baby, or anything that is celebrated.
Have a wonderful day, everyone!  Tomorrow's Friday!  Yihoo!
