Very nice, you are quickly becoming my favorite designer Geekink. I love everything you do. This one feels as if it were hand stamped, which I'm sure was your intention.

Reminds me of a silkscreen poster. Love the treatment of type and the flourishes. My only suggestion is that I don't think you need the texture on the background, but it works as is too.

I absolutely love the typesetting, it's beyond perfect, but I feel like you could improve on your color choices (not always, but sometimes...) This style worked great for the gift tags, but I think this could be way more striking if the background was a darker color and the text was lighter. Just my opinion, of course, and I'm obviously too late for constructive criticism... You still get a 5 from me :-)

have you considered putting it on a long skinny invitation with long skinny envelopes? that could be unique and really cute.
