Malia 1st Birthday invitations

The Weeks have flown by...So much so that I almost ran out of time!
I made Malia's 1st birthday invitations. This is the first time I've ever tried to make invitations. What an accomplishment it was! I mean WOW I did it! My first ten invitations were done over a weekend and I thought they turned out great. Well I took them to work and a friend pointed out the hinge was too fragile. She was right...Well I could tell I just hadn't thought how to fix it..I guess I thought they'd be ok. I made this card with my cricut and design studio. I added two shadows of a flower welded together. That corrected the first ten. I then went to my original cut file and added more circles to the hinge and that gave the card a more study hinge.I used plan white card stock and painted metallic white paint over body and face. I used chalk for the nose and mouth and dimensional for head,body & hair.
Here's my card:

They are sooooo cute! My daughter is in a sorority and their mascot is a lamb. I would love to have the cutfile and make note cards for her. TFS! You did a terrific job!
