invites
i finally finished the invitations for my soon-to-be sister-in-law ashley's bridal luncheon. they turned out pretty cute. i embellished each hand with a diamond ring and decorated the flower centers with a sugary glass glitter. subtle sparkle. i can't believe the wedding is this month!

hi just passing by.. did you come up with that little poem yourself? that's such a good idea, but i don't want to "steal" it if it's your writing.

i did come up with the little poem, but by all means, take it!

thanks for the nice e-mails! i did do the drawing, and yes, shag was my inspiration! i love the elegantly slender, lovely, lovely ladies he features and wanted to capture that in the slim arm tossing the bouquet. i was also inspired by the you send me card line that uses the very fine sugar glitter. i think these invites turned out pretty cute, but if i were to do them again, i'd make them a little smaller!!
