I wanted to incorporate chalk board background and a mustache in the invitations. Pixaby has a lot of free graphics and I found 2 that worked for my design.

I made the invitations on Canva, which I talked about the online program in this post. I selected Card design graphic for my layout size, uploaded the two Pixaby images and got cooking. One of their free graphics was this Happy Birthday card, which is where I got the image of the candles.

Now that I have the invitations out of the way, I can focus on Pinspiration and select ideas that will be easy to replicate DIY projects, baked goods, and party supplies I can find online.
