Margo Penelope

My adorable neice Margo is anxiously awaiting her baptism this month... well maybe she has no idea what is coming, but we are all excited for her! My sister-in-law Rania wanted to celebrate Margo with the brightest and pinkest of pinks, but also wanted something appropriately Autumn-ish. I guess you could say I was insprired by water in creating this illustration and it fits as Margo is about to take the plunge. The invite is printed in 5(!) runs on super 220# Lettra. I used the thicker stock so the top kraft piece would tie nicely around the invite without tearing the edges. The kraft peice features a Mandinatha (traditional Cretan couplet) about Margo's upcoming event and Godparents and discretely hides hotel info for out of town guests on the reverse. I found the bright pink twine at The Twinery who has bakers twine in a whole lot of amazing colors.
