Cocktail Invitation

I know it's a little late for inviting folks over for New Years Eve, but this invitation could be used for a cocktail party any time of the year!
I used the Hostess With the Mostess digi-stamps from Amber Ink for this one. I made my own digi-paper to layer under the image layer and to cut the svg shrimp out. The svg and the digipapers are your freebie today! There are three digi-papers: Salmon, Chilled and a Gradient Salmon color, plus the double layered Shrimp SVG in the file download.
The digi-stamp is colored in my PSE program, printed and then I added some Star Dust Stickles. The champagne flutes actually had the bubbles added in PSE, but they didn't show up in a photo well, and I wanted a little more pizzazz, so I added the Stickles. :)
My son thought I should add something to the top left corner of the card, but I think sometimes "less is more". What do you think?

Please leave some love if you enjoy my freebies! I love to hear from you! :) This is how I know you were here, like what you see, and would like to see more!
If you have any problems with this file, please let me know so I can fix it for you, and for others!

  1. I like it and agree that the left corner (top) can live without something; otherwise, I would had put the sentiment there and nothing in the right bottom....haha I would love to come to the cocktail party and you wouldn't even have to send me the pretty card....haha

  2. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave in the Cutting category today [03 Jan 01:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  3. Great invitation! I really like the sparkly champagne and shrimp dip. I also think the card looks perfectly balanced "as is". ;)

  4. YUMMY! You're off to a great 2011 already! Now don't tempt me, I'm dieting!!!
