My sister is throwing a 40th wedding anniversary party for her in-laws and asked me to make the invites! She really liked this card from Julie Purdum ("jeweleintn" on Splitcoast), so I made 2 samples in two different colors for her to choose from. Personally, I like the purple one better. I think it is more festive and fun. But, my sister loves green, so I just knew that I would have to use it for one of my samples. She, of course, liked that one better. She said it was more elegant and sophisticated, which I actually have to agree with. If you look at the one by Julie, it is done in different shades of blue. I think hers is also very elegant. I think she said she used it for a wedding card.

Isn't it funny how you can take the exact same card, change the colors and give it a whole new feel? I wondered how the card would look with some other colors (pink, red and yellow were the ones that immediately popped into my head), like if the different colors would convey some other feel. However, I'm tired of looking at this card after making 30 of them for my sister, so maybe that will be saved for another day!
