Invitations for a very special Birthday Party

Well, it IS a special party for Miss Lillian, who turns 4 in a couple of weeks. It will be the first party that she will be inviting guests of her own to, and she has quite a list from daycare, along with a few other friends ("for Ciaran to play with" - of course...)

I made these mostly yesterday at my first Stampin Crop day, it was nice to break out some stamps other than Stampin Up, although I have used those here too. The lovely pink flourish on the Confetti White is a Hero Arts Design block stamp called Flourish. Finally other companies got how much we love our SU background stamps that cover a whole card, and I couldn't resist this one (and a couple of others!) at a recent Papercrafts show. Especially after the imminent loss of some of my very favourite SU background stamps, SOB! I also added a heart shaped polymer clay piece I picked up at a clearance shop for a 3D finishing touch. They are millfiore or something like that, incredibly complex designs!! The cardstock colours are Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Confetti White, and the stamps are Polka Dot background and the heart from Priceless. I've used the scallop circle and some pretty in pink grosgrain ribbon to finish, along with greetings from the Cheers and Wishes stamp set. They are pink, which is all that matters to her. Well, actually I AM surprised that she didn't protest about the lack of "My Little Pony" stamps on there - that might come later I suspect!!

Very pretty, thanks for sharing. Good use of those hearts. Yes, I'm surprised there is no sign of My Little Pony there. The background stamp looks great. Does the number of invites shown here mean Miss Soon To Be 4 is inviting other people (beyond me) to her party? I thought she wanted a party for just me and her :) Love from Aunty Kim
