Birthday Party Invitations

My dear daughter, Susanna, is turning 3 in a few weeks, and she wanted a Kitty Cat themed birthday party (because she IS a kitty cat, or so she tells me every few minutes). So I pulled out the one stamp set I have that has a cat on it. It was the Wicked halloween stamp from this past year! She wanted it pink, so I chose the colors of the Color Throwdown and made it Garden Green and Smoothie :)

These looked to me a lot like the colors in the new Dotty for You kit: Lagoon, Smoothie, Sunset, and I chose Garden Green (instead of Sweet Leaf that comes in Dotty).
The sketch for this invitation is from Freshly Made:

I also used the inspiration photo from Inspired By, and made an umbrella to represent Springtime.

So here's the invitation:
Materials used:
Paper: Dotty for You, White Daisy and Garden Green cardstock
Stamps: Wicked, Happy Holidays, Art Philosophy
Ink: Chocolate, Garden Green, Smoothie
Other: Green Button Assortment, Baker's Twine Paradise Assortment

I think Susanna will love it!
