More Wedding Invites!

I was asked by a friend if I would make her wedding invitations. I was told it was a small wedding - only 13 invitations were required and 10 evening invitations. She wanted a beach/sea theme as she was going home to the Channel Islands to get married and she gave me a pot of shells as she wanted me to use them on the invitations.
This is what I came up with - I was thinking about them for weeks and then one Sunday evening I put this together, Karen approved the invite and I have just finished making them.

The sentiment is Stampin Up , along with the close to cocoa ink and the punches.
The Scalloped cards were from Craft Work Cards (I got them when I went to Ally Pally). I have inked the edges with Stampin Up! So Saffron Ink and the ribbon is SU So Saffron ribbon.
The Pins are from a lovely selection at Wild Orchid Crafts
The shells are all the way from the Seychelles and I have stuck them to the invites using Silicon glue (better to be safe than sorry!) - didn't want them falling off!!

The Seashell embossing folder is from Spellbinders Impressabilites - a bit of a fiddle with my Cuttlebug - but I got there in the end.
I was really pleased with the final result and Karen loved them - thankfully I only had to make 13 and I have advised Karen posts them in padded envelopes!
The inside I did on the computer and used my tearing tool and inked the edges of the paper

The evening invitation I have printed directly onto Very Vanilla cardstock from Stampin Up! - as it goes through my printer easily and I have stuck Prima flowers and pearls on it and inked the edges so it matches the wedding invite.
Thanks for looking
Love and Hugs
