Border Punches - Paper Playtime

Happy Monday everyone!      

It's challenge day over at Paper Playtime.  Today, Janis challenged us to make a project showcasing BORDER PUNCHES!!  Here is what I came up with:

Saturday was my baby girl's 7th birthday.  She had a Barbie party.  When I was browsing Pinterest for ideas I saw THIS and decided that I needed to recreate her on my Gypsy girl.  I took a rectangle from George and Basic Shapes, and two scalloped circles from Elegant Edges and welded them together to make the base of my card.  I made a belly band to hold it closed and used EK Success's "Dotted Scallop Edge Puncher" to pretty up the edge.  Isn't it fancy?  The word Barbie is from Gypsy Font - welded on my Gypsy girl.

She was inviting 5 little girls, so I made 6, including one for her.  The pink cardstock is from Bazzil, the black and white are from Recollections.  The striped pink and white paper is also from Recollections.  I cut the "Barbie" silhouette out of Forever Young - she isn't exactly Barbie, but I figure she's close enough!  There is some pink ribbon from SU separating the striped paper from the white part of the invitation.  I printed the invite itself on the computer.

Be sure to peek back, because I will have a few other things from the party to share with everyone!  Please hop over to Paper Playtime, see what the rest of the Design Divas came up with, and play along with us.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!
