A Sweet Invitation

I'm up as featured designer at Card A Day Blog February 1st and the week's theme is "Invitations".  I designed this card using the current (#48) sketch from Sketches By Carly.  I also broke into a new pad of 12 x 12 paper and a stamp set!  Whoo Hoo...and I didn't even get nervous.  lol  The paper is "Marry Me" from KI Memories
The cake stamp is from the "Piece of Cake" set by Close to My Heart.
I stamped with black Archival Ink and colored with makers.  To get the coloring close to the paper colors on the card, I stamped multiple sample images and then experimented until I got what I wanted.
I used a strip of the glittered paper as an accent.  The sentiment was part of a more detailed stamp so I used a mask to stamp just what I needed.  After I punched the circle out, I used the same pink marker as on the cake around the edge.
I think this card would be wonderful as a bridal shower invitation!
