    Hi all...many (many) of you are so creative and always have good suggestions so here I am asking for some help, if anyone's up for it. I am making my own invitations using a petal envelope and 3 flat cards on the inside....one flat card is brown and the other flat card is light blue (I cut it down a little so you can see the brown peeping from behind) and the 3rd card is a metallic white--which is the one I'm using to write the invite info on. This card is approximately 5x5, not much room to work with. This is my verse:

    Because you have shared in their lives
    by your friendship and love
    you are invited to share
    with our daughter,

    Jessica Torres
    and
    Dominique Rodrigue

    when they exchange marriage vows
    and begin their new life together

    Mr. & Mrs. Angel Torres

    I used Chopin Script for our names but the spacing just seems off...and I wanted to have a pretty, swirly ampersand (in light blue) in between our names but I cant seem to do it right or create something eye-catching. The rest of the wording is in the Flourish font. I'm using Word (dont know if this is the issue with spacing, etc)...any suggestions would be gladly appreciated...so sorry this is lengthy. TIA!!

      Hey jessica,

      Is this the type of flourish ampersand you're looking for? Here's a jpg of something I just whipped up really quick. If you want it I can email the file to you...

                I actually made it in my FotoFusion program and the font sizes there aren't the same as in Word or Powerpoint. I basically just created a 5x5 canvas, then a couple text boxes, copy/pasted her text and hit a button to size it to the box. It seriously took me like 5 minutes for the whole thing... I love that program!
