Birthday Party Invites for my Son

Hi Everyone! Today I am excited to share with you the birthday party invitations I came up with for my son's 7th birthday party. No, it is not a Halloween party, its a mini-golf party .. but it is hard to please an almost 7 year old boy. He wanted me to buy Ben-10 invitations, but I just couldnt do it. I HAD to make them! So, he agreed as long as I used this great set from Clear Dollar Stamps called SPIDER GREETINGS which is apart of the August new releases.
Here you can see the different dp's I used all from the same collection, and how the invites look on the inside. I just love the "lets hang out" sentiment along side those cute spiders! These cards fit into the Stamptacular Sundays Challenge - to use a grid pattern, and Paper Sundaes challenge - to use Halloween colors. I think the black, orange & purple fit in just fine there.
Stamps: Spider Greetings (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper: Echo Park dp, basic black, misc textured cardstock
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Tombow Markers, Wild Huckelberry (CDS), Whisper White Craft ink
Tools/Accessories: Circle & Pinking Circle Nestabilities, Sponge

Oh, these are awesome, Christi! What great invites for his party, and I'll bet he was really thrilled after seeing them. It may not be Ben 10, but handmade is from the heart ;D
