    These are invitations that I've noticed a lot of girls have used on the forum (and who wouldn't with a 1/2 off coupon at Michael's - making them $23 for invites, envelopes, reply cards, etc.!!). They are a little plain on their own though, so I decided to add a little to make them more colorful and personal. Enjoy!

      Instead of reply cards, I decided to design and order postcards from Vistaprint... 100 for free (added bonus: postcard postage costs less than reply card envelopes!):

      I hope you all enjoyed! Let me know if you have any questions! :) Jo

        Joann, these are awesome!!! And just goes to show that fabulous invites don't have to be expensive and with a little creativity and design they look like a million bucks
