birthday invitations

so i have been excited about invitation design lately, but have always done our personal invitations, announcements, holiday cards. recently, i was asked to do the first birthday party invitations for a dear friend. the party theme was high tea, here is what i came up with.

the first is a (hand cut) fabric applique teacup with the birthday girl's name steaming out of the cup in guache

the second is a scalloped card, with sewn oversized "teabag" filled with lavender. the tag for the teabag is the invitation for the party.
