You'll Flip!

I am lucky enough to have both my kids birthdays with in a 2 week period. They both actually had the same due date when I was pregnant with them but Eli was born the 28th of Jan and Alli the 13th of Feb. So we usually do a joint party which sounds like it would not be too fair but my kids love having their partys together. Its like they get twice the amount of friends that show up. I was excited to make their invites this year and loved how they turned out. I used my Gypsy and was able to plot them out.
~*Recipe*
~*DCWV Cardstock from their Ultimate stack (the green with skulls and the zebra)
~*Red and pink cardstock
~*Post-It craft paper in white
~*George and Basic Shapes Cartridge (flowers)
~*Gypsy Wanderings and Gypsy Font (skull and 'A')
~*Black ink (to distress the edges)
~*Black fabric paint (to make the dots on the edge of the skull invite)
~*Pink button and rhinestone to place in the middle of the flower
I made them just a single panel and then I will flip them over and write their party info on the back. My kids cant wait to share them with their friends!!
