Wizard of Oz Birthday Invitation

I just realized I never showed everyone the completed invitation for my daughter's 5th Birthday Party.  I played around with a lot of other cards but she just loved this one!  Thank you everyone for your suggestions on this.  I did end up embossing the yellow brick road, added some stiching, sponged it and I added the Emerald City!  I never made it to the LSS that had the Emerald Shimmer Paper so I just free hand cut strips from SU Green Galore, outlined and Stickled them to make the Emerald City!

Cardstock is Stampin' Up!
Red Glitter Paper from LSS
Country Life Cart for the Rolling Hills
Paper Dolls for the Yellow Brick Road (it is smoke from the Genie's bottle, flipped upside down)
Gypsy Wanderings for the shoes (they are the only linked ones I could find that would work)
Hello Kitty Greetings Rainbow (I cut one of the bands and freehand the different strands of color)
Swirly Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Sentiment is printed from computer and cut with SU Small Oval Punch
SU Dazzing Diamonds Glitter on the Rainbow
Stickles for the Emerald City
A lot of Glue Dots!!!

So far, several of the people who have received their invitations have said they are framing them!  It makes me happy that they like them!   Later this week or early next week, I will start posting some of the fun stuff I have been working on for the party so please stop back!  I promise it will be exciting!
