as i was looking through pictures for yesterday's post, i came across this invitation that i had not yet posted either. i think when i make something with a lot of lead time, it gets forgotten since i don't like to post until after the party is over. anyway, this was another bouncy moment for me. the challenge was to recreate my original birthday olympics invitation as a sweet sixteen invite. it needed an older, more elegant feel to fit the style of the party.
the birthday girl's dress was pink, so that was a great starting point. and of course, the medal was a perfect gold opportunity. a little sparkly ribbon and clear glitter added texture and, paired with a more sophisticated font, really brought the invitation to life. pink, gold, shimmer, shine, perfect! and i'm making progress on posting!
