Skating Party Card

My foster daughter really wants a roller skating party for her birthday, so we made the reservations and she decided who she wanted to invite, and then I spent this morning making invitations to her party! Since I didn't have a Cricut cartridge with a roller skate on it, I found a cute die-cut pattern on the Silhouette site, and used that as my focal point. We're inviting boys and girls, so I tried to make the invite not too obviously girly but still included some pink.
