LESSology September Challenge: You're INVITED...

Hi there!
 Today I'm sharing with you my DT take for LESSology.
The challenge this month is to CREATE AN INVITATION for a special
occasion. And to try to think beyond a simple card.
This is what I came up with:
I made the envelope with some patterned paper. Found a button to add to the back.
This is the fastening. When you open it, this happens:
Obviously NOT an invite for this 54 year old's party, tee hee..... 30 is still a
pretty significant age, though!
I made the flowers up using stuff I had in my craft room:
They're layers of tissue paper, netting and satin...plus the buttons, of course:)
I've also added a button to the paper clip [below]. I think it looks cute!
Added some more tissue paper, pleated, behind the 'I am 30' card :)
And lots of doilies, too:
Made up the little bow.... thanks Lizzy C for the pretty butterfly!
The party information [not filled in for obv reasons!]
is at the top and bottom of the envelope invite:
 I used a couple of little stickers I had in my stash - thought they worked a treat!
Would love for you to get your thinking caps on
& join us at LESSology this month!
Blessings  ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
