Blogger's Challenge: Birthday Theme

Blogger's Challenge today was a Birthday Theme and I've had this one done for a few weeks.  Lucky for me, it was my daughter's birthday last week and so we had to get these invitations done early.

I chose a cute image from Tiddly Inks that would reflect the cake decorating party we were having.  It was a blast and the invitations were relatively simple to put together.  The poem was found online and I just changed a few lines to fit what I needed.  I printed the invitation on some Whisper White cardstock and then printed the image.  I colored the image with my Copic markers. Some crystal lacquer was added to the cake and some glitter to the candles.

I did finish the insides as well with all details of the party, which we had a blast at but brought home WAY too much cake.  Here's a cute little pic of the birthday girl with the cake she decorated.


If you would like to join us for our blogger's challenge, link up over at our list Mom's blog or below so we can see what you create using the Birthday theme.

Invitation Details:
Stamps: Big Wishes Lilly Bean from Tiddly Inks
Cardstock: Lovely Lilac, Whisper White
