Birthday Sundaes Challenge 6 - Special BDay Challenge & Crafty Cardmakers 44 - A Royal Wedding

Well, the Royal Wedding is very close, and so over at the Crafty Cardmakers site the challenge is to make a card using red, white and blue and/or a wedding theme.  I went with the red, white and blue color scheme and made a birthday theme to coincide with the Birthday Sundaes challenge, which was to NOT make a card, but rather make birthday themed projects such as invitations, cupcake toppers, etc.  It was fun to think outside the box this time and come up with some fun party accessories! 

I used the Just Cards and the Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridges to make an invitation, a butterfly cupcake topper, a crown party favor, and a purse placecard.

On the backside of the placecard I cut out Birthday Party and added Stickles and a gem.

I used Inkadinkado stamps to make the invite and a banner stamp (from Michaels for $1.50!) across the top. I added some Glossy Accents to the edges of the ticket stubs after cutting with 'postage' cut scissors.
