6! Yikes!!

My oldest is turning 6 next month! How did that happen?! So, this year, I am actually going to get a jump on the invitations to her party. I used the Skipping Stones Design #116 sketch, the Make it Monday #54 challenge to glitter some buttons (I used spray adhesive and white glitter and they look so sparkly and sugary) and the JUGS#124 color challenge: teal/green/pink/yellow. Mixing mutliple colors is really hard for me, so when I found this paper (DCWV) in my stash, it was perfect: the right colors and Happy Birthday. Then I just had to match up the colors and it was a piece of cake. The "6" is one of the dies from PTI's By the Numbers die set; I die cut it from paper and cardboard to give it a chipboard look. The sentiment is from Verve's "Birthday Phrases" and I used a flourish from Inkadinkado behind the 6.
