Magical Fairy Invites

The front of the invites, using Whimsy's Maya Making Wishes. Glamour dust was added to the wings and dandelion, it does sparkle beautifully, but isn't showing on the photos as usual.

The invite opens and has a detachable bookmark, by the request of my customer, I used a perforator for the bookmark.

This is the bookmark, made using a Molly Blooms Dandelion stmp, embossed with Sea Foam White embossing powder and Glamour Dust was added for magical sparkle. I added "Make A Wish" sentiment and embossed that too.

This is the inside ready for the party details to be added.

This is all 8 that I was asked to make.

Now if you want to read the next part, I will tell you a little story about the little girl for who these invites are for. When Bobby was 1 1/2 year old we started to go to a Playgroup, where we met a little girl of the same age, called Poppy and her mum Sarah. Now Poppy has some health issues, looks just like the little girl on the front of these invites. She has an illness called Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome, where her organs are enlarged, and some other problems. Now the first time we met, Bobby didn't take a second look and just started to play with her with a ball, she had no balance and could only crawl, but that didn't bother Bobby, he got down on his hands and knees and rolled the ball to her instead. Bobby never even batted an eyelid. Poppy was so sweet and gorgeous, Bobby didn't say anything about any of her problems, but was very careful around her.

And there grew a lovely friendship. They started Nursery together after Poppy's mum got her a place at school, as she is very bright and clever, they moved into reception together. Now Bobby doesn't play with her all the time, but he picks her up when she falls, wipes away her tears when she cries and watches out for her, and won't let anyone upset her.
Poppy won a special place in both our hearts, and Me and her Mum have become quite good friends. Poppy has gone through such a lot of medical treatments and operations and she's so courageous. She's a little treasure.
So when Sarah asked me to make the invites for Poppy's Magical Fairy Party, I couldn't resist, she asked if I could add a Bookmark so they had something to keep.

I would like to enter them for the following challenges:-
