Now let's get to the inspiration.  I created a birthday invitation and a place card using the set Enchanted.  I adore this little dragon.  Isn't he cute?  I colored him with Copic markers.  The borders are made with the stars stamp (also from Enchanted set).  I used Alphabet Soup to to make the name on the place card and the header on the invitation.
