Girl's bday card

So Boy has been invited to 2 birthday parties tomorrow.  Maybe it's just me but I generally give folks more than 1wk warning on birthday parties- he received both invites Fri. afternoon last week.  Color me silly I guess.  Anywho. 

Bday #1.  The invites were Dora themed so I'm guessing maybe the whole party will be Dora-ish (I've never even seen the girl so I have NO idea if she's a huge Dora fan.)  I'm guessing she's a bit girly based on that (possibly a bad assumption but that invite is all I know about her- my 3yr old can't tell me diddly) so I went with a girly card.  My girly stamps are minimal so I was going with a dress up doll.  Then I thought I could make it Dora colored and such.  Not perfect but at least I know I tried.
Stamps: Doll: Buttons, Bows & Twinkletoes: SU (I redrew and trimmed her hair a bit to make it more like Dora and added long sleeves to the dress for the same reason.)  Sentiment: Hero Arts
Paper: Yellow & White: Michaels, Shimmery purple: DCWV's Latte pack, Glitter... Target I think
Punch: Boho Blossoms: SU
