Fall Garden Party - The Invitation

This afternoon I had a few minutes to try and figure out the invitation for my Mom's 70th birthday party.  Since the party is in just a couple of weeks, I really need to get them out, um... yesterday.  So no time to get all fancy.  After a few minutes of playing around with some doilies in an attempt to stamp some blank cardstock with a lacey imprint (didn't work so well), I decided to go with the backup plan--

blank cards via Target

I just need to print out the party details and afix it to the inside of the card.  But to be honest, I was a little bummed that I couldn't personalize the invite a little more. So I decided to play with the doilies that I had onhand. 

Here's what I ended up with--
A Doily Envelope

Hmmm... maybe the butterfly is overkill?

I don't know if this will survive the USPS, so I might put it inside a larger envelope to protect it from the "elements"
