The invite itself is very heavily inspired (should I say copied?) by an invite I made some years back at a class by the wonderful Stephanie at The Paper Garden in Sacramento.
Pull out the invite and you can see I carried the theme right through
I used some pale blue shimmery card stock from my stash, I think it probably came from The Paper Garden, but I can't be sure, folded into a simple pocket which is held together with sugar organdy ribbon. Assorted shell in french roast, fern and titian complete the pocket. I had to play a bit to get the colours right - the card really changed the how the inks looked. For the invite itself I used sky, lichen and latte for the shells. The end result was I think pretty enough for the ladies without being too 'girlie' for the men!
