    I finally completed and mailed out all of my invites. I'm going with a black and white damask theme accented with teal. I bought the invites from the Bride's wedding collection from Michael's but wanted to add my personal touches. Here is what the invite looks like before.

    Here is the final product not much different just a few slight additions to make it more me.

    What I did was change the ribbon and used one that had a little white trim to it. I added a flower to the ribbon, which consisted of 3 flowers, the teal one was purchased in a bottle with a bunch of different sized flowers, the black and damask print flowers were punched out using a flower puncher, I used black and a damask print scrapbooking paper for these. I then put all three together with the mini silver brads and used a hot glue gun to adhere to the ribbon. And the final touch instead of using the damask label seals that came with the invites I made my own using sticker paper and one of the logos that I had created. Here are the items that I used which were all purchased at Michael's, with the exception of the sticker paper that I purchased at Office Depot.
