Monster Truck Party Hat Bday Invitations

Thanks to Lindsay at The Frugal Crafter's Weblog, I finally was able to figure out how I wanted to do my son's 3rd birthday party invites. She posted a free svg file today of a party hat card that she used to create her twin's birthday invites.
I used the freebie Monster Truck digi stamp from Dustin Pike. My son adores monster trucks! I will probably wind up making about 10 of these. I've made 5 already. I did them in under an hour this morning. The hard part is going to be nailing out the details of what I want the inside to say. I haven't picked a date or time yet. haha. I was able to fit 4 cards on one piece of cardstock! So this is a very cheap way to make invitations! I added some yellow stickles to the edge of the yellow at the bottom and top of the hat. Then I used some alpha stamps that I had laying around to put the work Party on the front. It is difficult to tell it by looking at this pic, but I also used some silver acrylic paint to paint the "chrome" parts of the truck. I wanted them to stand out separately from the tires. What do you think?
