Here is a birthday invitation I created for a friend using MDS. Her specifications were "rainbow colors, but no rainbows" and it was for a painting party for a little girl. She supplied a photo and I went to work.
My oh my, I sure thought I was pretty clever with that little "art" pARTy play on words. You like? Tee Hee!
Of course, the sample I've shared here has all the "telling" info blocked, but I'm sure you get the idea. I was thrilled to do something a little girly, although I think with the removal of a few sequins, this could work just as well for a boy.

The supplies I used are:
    Sara's Sequins/Sara's Sequins – teal, lavender, silver
    _Designer Kits/Downtown Grunge - embellishments/Downtown Grunge - frame 1
    Splatters/Ink Splatters/Ink Splatter 1, Color = ISLAND INDIGO

    Splatters/Ink Splatters/Ink Splatter 3, Color = RASPBERRY RIPPLE
    Splatters/Ink Splatters/Ink Splatter 3, Color = POOL PARTY

    Splatters/Ink Splatters/Ink Splatter 3, Color = CRUSHED CURRY
    Splatters/Ink Splatters/Ink Splatter 2, Color = ISLAND INDIGO
