Cat Party Card

My daughter asked for a cat party for her birthday, so the first step was making her invitations. I started with a cute card sketch from Atlantic Hearts challenge blog but, since I wanted to go vertical on my card base, I tightened up the design by moving the circles together. The card went through several revisions and I ended up simplifying it a bit because I just couldn't face hand cutting glitter tape for 30 cards (can anyone relate?) but I'm pretty happy with the final result!
