Cuttlebug Be Inspired Birthday Invitations

This week I'm pleased to tell you all about the be inspired challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. We are creating birthday invitations with core'dinations paper, and as part of our month long celebration each DT member has a theme, mine is a "movie party" I will be sharing tons of ideas and creative projects for this theme. I have kind of a twist on the traditional movie color scheme, instead of black red and yellow, I have chosen a hip cranberry, raspberry, and black combo with a touch of lavender, and creme.
This gorgeous paper is from "Marah Johnson" and is called rock star I purchased it from Michaels.

I started by embossing a cranberry core'dinations paper with the stars cuttlebug embossing folder, and sanded it generously. The next layers of paper were stitched, and the clock embellishment added, on top of that layer I wheeled a flourish onto acetate with stazon ink and placed it behind a sizzix film strip die cut.
A cuttlebug star die placed behind "you re invited" and a ticket stamped and cut out add dimension. the final touch is a bit of cream ribbon and a tab sticker from the rock star series.

This {back stage pass} serves as a party pass and has an RSVP card in the back, guests are instructed to wear their pass to the party for entry. It will also generate a ton of excitement for the upcoming event that I have dubbed "Chelseawood"
I can't wait to share all the party ideas I have with you, for even more inspiration party on over to cuttlebug challenge blog to see all the invitations my "bug sisters" have in store for you!
