Hello lovely Lara
Absolutely loving the invitation! Thanks so much. Agree that more detail in the invite would look good. I'm not worried about overcrowding it, I think if there are lots of different things going on in the design it adds to the overall narrative and intrigue. more the merrier in fact! loving the tree, could be push the castle to the left and put another one on the right hand side? Add in some flowers on the left hand side? flowers are good. add in a boat/canoe/surfboard on the sea?
Would it be possible to make the edging border the same size as the edging on the heart?

could you mock up a centred version and also a justified one - I tried doing this in word but couldn't get the desired effect to show you. I like the idea of the text making a square. wondered what that would look like.
was thinking about it how it will come together - if there was a fold in the card with the design on the front and then the wording 'inside'. also like using a ribbon though though because the design is quite intricate perhaps a ribbon might be over the top. need to decide on colour still...
