A Little Practice...

I always come up with the concepts for my club cards a few weeks in advance, and I generally will play around with the concept for awhile before I come up with my club card.  I came across a card on Jenn's Picard's blog that had a neat twist of making envelope cards.  I decided that with my practice card I would make one to check off an item on my "to-do" list:)  I've been meaning to invite some of the school mom's over for coffee and thought that I could make a cute invite.  I will often try to use up my retired product when I'm making practice cards or ones that aren't for my classes.  I've been eying this Night of Navy ribbon forever... it was in one of the Ribbon Originals sets awhile back and it was gorgeous.  Somehow I never got around to using it.
