They had a very formal 40th party so she wanted to go casual for their 50th with a luau theme. I had a blast designing them. The graphics are all mine from scratch. I have a hibiscus in my back yard so I took a ton of pictures of the flowers and leafs and went from there.
I am still missing one picture from the back but I couldn't wait to show you.
Close up of the front. I looked at a picture of scroll work to help me make mine. So I guess that isn't completely from me but it's not an exact copy of anyone else's either.
Needless to say I got A LOT of use out of my Wacom tablet - it ROCKS by the way! I sketched out all of my flowers scanned them in and then turned them into the graphic below. Each piece was a separate file that I inserted arranged and then tied them all together to make them look like a plant.
I really like them. I was really worried that I wouldn't! I hopefully will be sending them to be printed by the end of the week I am just waiting on final approval of wording ... and that last picture. I will show you them again when I get them back from printing.
Oh wait I didn't mention that these are a total suprise for the mom. She thinks she knows what she is getting but she really doesn't. We had to be all sneaky to get the photos collected because she has been very involved in the planning and knows everything that is happening. The switch up and all the photos will be a surprise from her daughters. (I am a really good salesman...I REALLY didn't want to cut and piece these!!! ... not that I am charging for these they are friends)
Let me know what you guys think I am so nervous about these!
