Circus Happy Birthday plus a WINNER.......

I'm still having a little trouble getting back into the crafting groove so I thought I'd post a project I did before I left for vacation. One of my best buddies, Traci, is planning her son's Birthday party and I told her I would do the invitations for her. As I have written in the past Traci is also quite the Cricut collector but sometimes us mom's just can't do everything :) I made 25 of these for her. It was really a fun thing to do--especially when making them for such a great friend!!
When making 25 of anything it is always better to keep it pretty simple....
I did, however, think it needed a little texture somewhere so I stamped the orange paper on the tent with a dotted circle stamp after I cut it. 
And..I used a black, white and silver pen to add some details. So Traci, you can now take that task OFF your list :)

How about a winner???!!
The winner of the My Pink Stamper stamp set from the Blog Hop this past Friday night is......

I will be in touch to get your information! Congratulations :)
