I'm my mother's matron of honor and I was bored last night, so I decided to design her bridal shower invitations. I already knew I wanted the theme to be "Love is in the Air" so I wanted the cards to play off that kind without being too cheesy, and I wanted the wording to do the same but I just could not get the dang thing to not sound like a 10 year old wrote it. My very awesome sister banged it out in just a couple of minutes.
This is the edited version of the card for the web. It's a lot smaller than the actual invite will be (4x6), so in case you can't read it, this is the poem my sister wrote for it:

You're invited to a bridal shower
To fete Liz before her big day.
Let's help her keep love in the air
And set the scene for her and her fiance.
Candles, chocolate, satin sheets,
Rich tastes, soft sounds, and low light
Are the kinds of things she'll need
To keep the mood just right.
Please bring anything that might help set the mood for love!
(shower deets)




In case anyone was wondering, this was created in PS7, with a gradient and a bunch of downloaded brushes from Deviant art. You can't really tell in the small version, but there are really tiny stars in the darkest part of the sky, and the hearts are kinda cloudy. Easy peasy but I like it *shrugs*


Any suggestions to make it better?? Or should I keep it as is?
