Bunco/Bunko July

It is my turn to host Bunco in July. I live up in the mountains, 28 miles outside of town. The rest of my Bunco Women live in town. So, I am mailing out reminder cards (along with directions) to let everyone know its at my house in July.
Some of us are a bit obsessed with themes. To the point that we coordinate everything to match our theme: dinner, prizes, they all 'match'. One of my favorite Bunco Ladies hosted this month, and her theme was birds! :) Our dinner was these super cute bird nests made out of oriental noodles, in a bed of salad greens. You could fill the nest with either chicken salad or egg salad. How fitting, huh? The prizes were potted plants with a bird hodge-podged on the pot, with some type of garden item. She even water marked out score sheets with birds, and our tables had birds holding a number. She is so clever, and the whole affair was super cute, super creative, and it made the whole evening super fun! I have a weakness of birds, so I'm glad I didn't start last month with gifts. So, I have chosen my second favorite...girly-girl, with a bit of shabby-chic. I haven't come up with a menu, yet. But I'm pretty sure that I can whip something up. The gifts are always hand-made items. I always make a set of note cards, gift bag, and matching item (magnet, candle, altered frame, etc) that coordinates together. So, this should be fun!
Anyways back to my card. Most of the supplies used to create this card are from Stampin' Up! The card stock is Sahara sand, pretty in pink, and whisper white. I used Friends 24-7, en Francias stamp sets. I used two hand held punches: scallop circle, and 5 petal flower. I ran the 'leaves' through a floral embossing folder and the butterflies were made with their embosslit.
Thanks for looking! Hope you are enjoying whats left of your weekend, and don't forget to tell the men in your life how special they are.
