Nice job combining those 3 fonts! It came out working really well. I'm trying to put other birthday's in that "three-O" position and I'm not sure what i think. big "one-eight!". big "three-4!". big "four-3!" it's get's tricky if it's an odd number

I agree with Andres that many other birthdays wouldn't display as nicely, but 30, 40 and 50 would all look great! It's these milestones that most often merit a large celebration (and therefore a paper invitation). I think this is really fun!

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments! Andres - As Carrie mentioned, this would be just a milestone birthday invite. And no one ever says you're turning "the BIG three-4!" So I don't think the type will be an issue. But thank you for the feedback. :)
