A berry sweet party.

I'm gearing up for Kati's birthday this weekend and thought I'd pop in to show you the invitations I've made. We are doing a "strawberry theme" this year, as you might have seen in a previous post of mine here. :) Kati can hardly wait for the party! I just hope the weather holds out for us and doesn't rain. 13 seven year olds might get a little rowdy inside the house!
To make the invitation background, I used LilyBee paper (polkadot) and some Crate paper I believe (woodgrain) with the Card Base-ics #2 die. I stamped the lines with a stamp from By Invitation. The polka dots stamped in the background are Polka Dot Basics II. "Berry sweet" is from Strawberry Patch Sentiments and "party" is from Happy Day. The strawberry is made with the Strawberry Patch stamps and dies.
I couldn't help but to stamp the envelopes too.
Since Kati is not big on cake, we are doing an ice cream bar with several toppings from them to choose from, but I am making mini cupcakes (with strawberry frosting) to top off our ice cream for those who do like cake! I will try and update with more pictures after the party. Thanks for reading today,

Danielle these are such pretty invites! Love the colors and the strawberry theme. I have a hard time with the card Base-ics #2 die I never know what size to cut the center paper. When you a free min. would you mind letting me know the center paper size you used. Thanks! Happy birthday to your sweet daughter, I hope she enjoys her day.
