Zoe's First Birthday Invite

Hey Y'all.  Apparently I just couldn't stay away, so here I am back to share another card/invitation with you all.  I was honoured to be asked to create this card for my little Niece's first Birthday Party.  My sister wanted to have an under the sea theme, and this stamp set was absolutely perfect for this.  I used colours that are part of the theme of the party.  I only created one of these invites, as the people who were invited were done so either through facebook or because they are immediate family they already had knowledge about it.   Ashley (my sister) then asked for us all to sign inside the invite with our well wishes for Zoe, so that she could add this to her keepsake book so that she has it to look back on in years to come.  

I cannot believe it's already been a year since she was born.  I remember the day of her birth so vividly.  Watching her grow is so much fun, but part of me wishes she was little forever because the cuddles are never the same as they grow up.

Here's the invitation that I created for her Birthday Party...

Here's the front of the invite...

Here's the side view of the invite...(I had hoped it would show off the sparkles better, but for some reason it just didn't capture it like I had hoped...maybe next time ill turn on the flashlight.)...
