Party Card

Here is a card that I made today and believe me when I say it took me all morning to do!! It originally had "you are invited to a ... party" on it, but it just didn't look right and then I muddled around with the bugs. But anyway this is the final piece.

I wanted it to look like a fancy dress party card, don't think it does though!! The base card was cut out using my Cricut as it has an aperture in the middle with a balloon shape cut out. I used HOTP papers for this one. The hexagons were also cut out with the Cricut. And of course the images are stamps from Alota. Cute aren't they? They come in an unmounted sheet and are called Paper Doll. They come in two sizes and you can find them here.

Stamps:- Alota
Papers:- HOTP
Cricut cartridges:- George Basic Shapes, Stretch your Imagination.
