Birthday Invites

How is it possible that Abby is going to be turning 7? Time has truly flown. I am NOT one of those parents who goes all out for parties. We have a simple little gathering with a few of her close friends... this year, there will be a maximum of 7 kids (including her and Jojo) and I'm calling it a 'crafting' party. I bought some ornament kits at a yard sale in the spring that we'll use, and she also wanted to make some cards (Can Do!), so it should be pretty easy.

I only needed to make 4 invitations (two of the guests are twins) which hardly seemed worthwhile. I came up with this design and made 8 of them, so now I have 4 extras that will be used as birthday cards in the future. I colored with Copics but didn't mess with shading because lets face it, the kids aren't going to notice. (That and I have trouble shading the dress in this image because it's such a large expanse!) Of course I had to add some Stickles and CB embossing!
