Kentucky Derby Party Invites

Hi, Friends......

I am here to share a super-fun project I did for a friend. She was off to the races at the beginning of the month.....her first time to travel to the Kentucky Derby. But back in January, she had a Kentucky Derby party so some of us could come over, eat, and watch the movie "Secretariat" together. I had the Graphic 45 "Off to the Races" collection and offered to make invitations. 

Things have been so crazy the last few months that I never got them blogged. When I saw Dar and Diane were having a Kentucky Derby Hat inspiration board on their challenge blog, I knew I needed to hurry while there was still time!

Here you can see the front of one of the two were alike. You can see the inside of another in the background. It was so much fun mixing and matching a couple of different Graphic 45 collections....(Cafe Parisian and Off to the Races).

Here's the entire group of 12 invitations. (You can click on the photo to enlarge it if you wish to see them in more detail.) My friend loved them, by the way!!

Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 "Off to the Races" and "Cafe Parisian" collections
DCWV Cardstock

Hope you enjoyed this set of invitations. It was really fun to make. Hope my friend had good luck on whichever horse she put her $5 on last weekend!! LOL...
