Sample #1 of my daughter's birthday invites


I'm playing around with a few theme ideas for my daughter's upcoming 2nd birthday. I typically make all of the invites, some type of "favor" for the grandparents, uncle, and aunt, and a party banner. Right now, I'm thinking of doing either polka dots or cupcakes as the main theme w/ some Dora mixed in. She likes all 3 so I think I'll be safe, and the only Dora things are going to be the cake and her birthday shirt at this point. I can only do so much Dora.

Anyways, let me know your thoughts on sample #1. I really like pink/ green and pink/ brown combinations, and I really like how this one turned out. Ignore the adhesive spots please. :) Also, it didn't pick up really well, but the white cardstock says "Our Sweetie Turns 2!"
As an incentive to help me out, one lucky commenter will receive a cupcake card w/ your choice of saying on the white cardstock (Happy Birthday, etc.)!!

Very cute invitations.

I love the card - very cute. My only suggestion would be that if you ARE wanting to add more...but I think it's perfect as-is...you could add a candle or cherry to the large cupcake (to match the stamps in the background).

thanks for the comments everyone! I love the idea about adding a candle or cherry to it. I may even add a number 2 on top of the cupcake!
