You're Invited!

How about this for your Summer BBQ invites? 
I created this card a while ago for a magazine submission call but it wasn't selected for publication :-( .  The BBQ image, the Grass Blades, and the "You're Invited" sentiment (D087) are by DRS Designs. 

This invitation was pretty simple to make.  I stamped the Brush BBQ Grill (H021) on white cardstock so that it was off-centered.  I used the masking technique to create the horizon, sponging the sky blue, and ground with olive green ink.  Then I used the Easy Grass Background (E059) to add in the grass blades.  I used pencil to draw in the steam coming from the grill, and embellished the upper portion of the image with red and white plaid ribbon with a single staple.

For some added dimension, I adhered the grill with foam tape. 

Hope you all enjoy your BBQ's this holiday weekend.

Happy 4th of July to all my American Followers!
