Thanks Melanie!! I made it a faux transparency so I could make the overlapping color more pleasing and keep the red and black true to their colors.

I love the heart and spade icon. Only suggestion is to pull back on the swashes in the names just a little bit. =)

Please critique... is the heart & spade icon too big?

This is fantastic - Jill! I love the concept and how managed to do a Vegas invite that is so clean and modern :) I don't think the icon is too big personally ... I am wondering though if you've tried it with spade overlapping the heart instead of vice versa (ie. with the black on top instead of the red on top) - it might make the transparent effect a bit crisper/sharper and then also your red heart could keep it's opacity so it wouldn't have to go pinkish (just a thought - I think it looks fantastic as is too!)
