Wedding invitations

Happy Friday everyone!!!  I am so happy to see Friday again.  What a long 2 weeks it has been, at least it feels like it to me.  How about everyone else?
We don't have any set plans for this weekend.  Do you guys have any fun and exciting plans for this weekend?
So some friends of ours are planning on getting married next month (it got bumped up thanks to the military).  That is the same thing that happened to my wedding.  My husband and I had a date set for Sept. 28th.  Then he got orders to Alaska.  Since we weren't married I wasn't part of his orders so we had to rush our wedding and do all the paperwork to get me on his orders and plan on our move and all the fun stuff that comes with that.
I was asked to make the wedding invitations for the wedding.  I didn't want to get too elaborate because I am not sure how many I need to make just yet and the time restrictions are going to make it difficult.
This is what I came up with as a rough draft.
I know the bride likes purple, as do I, so I looked for some nice paper I could use that had purple in it.  The PP is DCWV latte.  The cardstock is the new PTI color Fine Linen and plum pudding.
The flourish was stamped with my scrappy cat stamp and embossed with kaleidoscope embossing powder.  I just love the sparkle.  The sentiment was stamped with PTI's $5 set called Favor it Wedding and tied on with brown dmc floss to a button.
Now, I have a special treat for everyone.  Like I just said, this is a rough draft.  We are probably going to go shopping this weekend for some supplies to make more.  BUT I am not sure about the layout just yet.
This is what I am going to do.  Please tell your friends to come one over and take a look, leave a comment with an idea I can use to spruce up the layout.  I will pick a random winner to get a Veggiebella stamp that needs some loving and some extra embellishments I have but haven't used in a long time.
Okay, go to it, 2 simple steps to win some goodies.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
