Impression Obsession Challenge-It's a Party (and what a party it will be!)

This week's challenge for me is perfect because this month at my house we're having a Party!

My Mom and Dad are celebrating their 50th Anniversary on the 27th of October.
My Mom especially LOVES a celebration and loves to party.
No demure Anniversary Celebration here, it's going to be a big bash!

Since their Anniversary is so close to Halloween, she decided that she wanted to have a Costume Party
So, we're going to do it. What started with a few invitations (about 30) came forth and multiplied! I think I just finished the 95th last night. 

But more about that in a bit, I want to tell you about my "Party" card first.
Don't you love this big sentiment? It's fun, because it's big enough to paper piece if you want. I chose to colour it with my Touch Markers. What about those Spooky Cobwebs? No need for background paper, I made my own! This is a huge CAC Spider Web stamp. FUN!!!! I also used Border Duo 3 to ground the fabby wide ribbon! Some Diamondy Smooch Glitz Jazzed up the letters a litte more and I sprayed the sentiment with Dylusions Ink Spray to increase the festivity factor! I had some batty friends left over from the invites, so I embellished away!! Sure glad they're not alive!

Since I had so many invites to make, I wanted to keep them fairly simple. The first 30 were all hand sponged, which looked gorgeous, but to spare the risk of carpal tunnel, I decided not to sponge the rest and added a stamp over the printing and tore the botton edges 

On this one, I used Stars

On this one, Bird Collage 4

Of course my post would not be complete without my Touch Twin Colour Map!

Hope you'll play along.

This week we have
