Birthday Party Invite - Cuttlebug Challenge #47

One of the blogs I enjoy is the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. Each week they post a new challenge, and I've participated in a few of them. (I'd do more if I had more time!)
This month the blog turns one. To celebrate they are doing lots of fun stuff all month long!
The challenge for this week was to create a birthday invitation using any Cuttlebug folder.
Since my daughter's birthday is coming up in just two months, I decided to get an early start and enter the challenge.
For a long time now she's been telling me she wants a "Baby Birthday." Anyone who knows her, knows she LOVES babies --both the real ones and dolls! Must admit it posed a challenge for me to come up with something that is babyish, but isn't too baby shower-ish. All of it had to pass her inspection, and she was pretty picky about what she wanted and didn't want. I managed to find something to satisfy her and even found a Baby Doll cake - thanks to Better Homes and Gardens!
Here's what I came up with for the invitation...


Supplies used:
  • White/pink/green card-stock
  • Pocket Scraps - Tis the Season Mini Dots - Paper
  • Baby Clip Art from here
  • Pink Ribbon
  • Pink Ribbon Roses
  • Rubber Stampede Party Plans Stamp
  • Stampabilities - Baby, Bottles, & Bears Stamp Set
  • Scallop Scissors
  • Zig Memory Systems Felt Tip Pen - Faux Stitching
  • Versa Color - Fresh Green Stamp Pad
  • Cuttlebug Die Cut - Flower
  • Cuttlebut Embossing Folder - Polka Dots

Very cute! I did a similar theme for Regina last year, but her cake was a rag doll. I didn't do any invitations, though, because it was just us. :)

I wanted to do a rag doll theme (Raggedy Ann or something), but M. wouldn't hear of it. She likes real looking babies and wanted a real looking baby invite and cake.
