Its that time of year again folks. Not sure what was going on this time 6 years ago but it seems that every child that we know was born within a 4 month period of one and another, wink, wink! 

Cameron will soon be invited to a multitude of birthday parties and so spending the afternoon creating an invitation or two seemed like an appropriate choice of project. 

I had a few bits of cardstock left over from last project so I've stuck with the same colour combo. As you can see, the base of the invitation is stamped with the "A Beautiful Thing" wheel. I had already done this, with another project in mind but you know what they say, "waste not, want not"! 

I think Stampin' Up! have really got it spot on here, I would never have put these two colours together. I've teamed them with an easy hole punch design, gives it a retro look I think.

Cardstock: Only Orange and Brilliant Blue
Ink: Only Orange and Brilliant Blue
Stamp sets: "Fun and Fast Notes", "Cheer and Wishes" and "A Beautiful Thing"
Accessories: corner rounder and hole punch

The "Birthday" sentiment was part of a larger sentiment stamp. I inked the area I wanted and then carefully removed ink from the other words using an alcohol free baby wipe and then dried it thoroughly. I won't lie to you folks, it took quite a while to make sure there was absolutely no ink left behind; makes me wish a I had a set of Stampin' Write markers! All I would have had to do then, is quickly colour over my chosen word and stamped away. My birthday isn't until September....Weep.

I love the blue and orange colour combo. Interesting hole punch idea - might have to borrow that!
