After having one of the most amazing weeks of my life, I began reflecting more on 2009 this morning. I have been surrounded by so many talented friends who have truly rallied around the work done here at the Momental Studio. I’m a big dreamer and an even bigger doer but those I have met over the last year and their reactions to my work make the experience truly meaningful.

Handmade custom invitations & stationery

I LOVE both, very difficult to choose a favorite. The monochromatic red treatment on the borders is quite dramatic and combines perfectly with your champagne printed layer!
I worked with a soft palette of purples, white and cream. The multi-layered butterfly features a our signature Vintage Lacy pattern with hand-painted touches and scattered rhinestones. The butterflies (and one dragonfly) were created from hand-painted watercolor paper! Here is a look at the style of silk box I would recommend plus some color options I thought would work well! Also a look at the lace paper we discussed.

We can incorporate more gold by printing one of your enclosures on a soft gold cardstock! I created two samples using the Vintage Lacy and Swirls pattern. Can I just say how much I LOVE this color palette!
