Punch Art: Bowling Party Invitations

My grandson Max is turning four next month and he's having a bowling party.  Of course, I get to make the invitations.  I wanted to do a bowling bag design with a bowling ball & pins.  So Big Shot and Punch Art to the rescue!!  

In fact, what saved the day was the two NEW Big Shot Dies from the 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog.  They measure 3-1/2" and 3".  Perfect for a bowling ball.  The bowling pins took a little more work, but I'm satisfied with the results. 

My daughter, Angie and I made the invitations this weekend and they turned out great!  Take a look...
