Nesting Doll Birthday Party Invitations

As I was sorting through the girls' "Memory Box", that magical box that contains all their birthday and Christmas pictures, dance recital programs and swimming badges, etc.,  I realized that unlike her older sister, my little one hadn't gotten hand-made birthday invitations since her first birthday.  As her 4th birthday is quickly approaching, I decided I better hop to it and get to work.

I recalled a link to a craft on Suzy Krause's blog that I thought would be perfect.  My husband's heritage is predominantly Ukrainian, and I've always loved nesting dolls, so I thought it would be the perfect fit.  Since she's turning 4 I only included four of the dolls in the card, instead of the five that the pattern has.  Here's some of the cards, finished except for the party details written on the biggest doll's body.
