Earlier today, I was trying to think of what 16 year olds would like in the way of a sweet 16 invite and all of my thoughts seemed so dated. Wow, this is IT!! I need to watch MTV or something. I'm not sure if mixing the buildings up a bit so the skyline looks more realistic would be a good thing or if it would take away from the great symmetry you have going on . . . just a thought that ran through my head. I would be there if it weren't for the mocktails!

Sawheet! Great idea! I wonder when you're playing around with the buildings what it would look like to have the bottom of the buildings coming out beneath the ribbon. It might make it a little less top heavy and really make the starburst area pop.
