May Papertrey Bloghop

Happy Friday! Today is the May Papertrey Bloghop.
This month the challenge was this photo
This is what I came up with. The Invitation
The Menu
The first thing I thought of when I saw this photo was matching invitations and a menu to go with that beautiful table setting. I found the menu on this website where the photo came from. I wanted to use the Table Service Stamp set but didn't have it so I improvised. I have since bought it though and it is on it's way to me for future use. Thanks Carol!
I started with a Simply Chartreuse Base and embossed it with the linen impression plate. Next I added digital pattern papers, computer generated the text on both and embossed them with a Damask Embossing folder. I created the plates from more patterned paper and circles. The utensils were made using a cut file. Finally I finished it off by making the 3D Hydrangea flowers using this tutorial. The flowers are greener in real life but here is a close up photo of them and the embossing

 I also made a matching envelope box and lined it with more checkerboard paper. You can find the tutorial for how to make one here

I look forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with on Nicole's blog now. I hope the your holiday weekend is a great one and as always thanks for stopping by.
