Alice Party (Black) Invite...

I am trying out ideas for my daughter Justice's 18th Birthday.
It's in December, but I know all to well how fast that comes, so I need to start now. 
We have done Hello Kitty every year for the last 5 years and this year we want something new.
So I figured I would try out a few ideas, and eventually I will hit a winner.

This is my Alice Party (Black) Invite.

To make this card I used:
Recollections Black Cardstock
Light Blue and Tan  Cardstock
Darice Bubbles Embossing Folder
Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Distressed Ink
BIC Blue Skies Blue Marker
BIC Tuxedo Black Marker
From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge
Alice Digi from Digi My World

you can find it on (that's where I bought it)
On Etsy:
or you can find it here:

My Card:
I used From My Kitchen to make the cake. 

 I used the BIC markers to color the embossed Bubbles.

 I couldn't resist... I had to make Alice wobble with an Action Wobble...

 Inside of Card. Clean and simple, but I like it.

 Cake on inside.

As cute as this Alice Invite - Card is... it didn't make the cut for her invitation.
It does however give me the another chance to try out another idea.
I think I will remake this card as a Birthday Card.
