bright-monster-circus-party.... what?


That's exactly what I thought when a client first emailed me asking for invitations to a "vintage circus meets neon monster halloween party."  She had seen the party I threw for Thomas, and asked if I would create something for her.  (on a side note, I love a party mash-up!  My bestie threw her daughter a polka-dot-monster-barbie party one year, and it was hysterical...)

There were some negotiations over the monster colors... since neon scares me... and I came up with these invites:


She emailed me a picture of the beautiful black and white awning that would be a main focus of the party, so I replicated that in the striped background... I cut strips of black card-stock and adhered them to my white card-stock base.   I then stamped my monster scene, and paper-pieced the 2 not-so-scary monsters to add the pop of color that would marry the monsters with the vintage circus theme...  and all of the personal party info?  Hidden in the "très circus" ticket-strip at the top:


 Once unfolded and flipped over, the guest will be able to see all the what-where-whens of the party...


I have already started creating more goodies for this party, and I can't wait to share! 

For now, have a great day!  Thanks for popping by!
