Design: Bridal Shower Invites

My friend Sara, like all brides-to-be, is about to get some showering, and, as designer-in-residence in the bridal party, I cooked up some invites for the occasion. If I had more time, I'd definitely change a few things about the execution, but I was pretty pleased with how the concept came together:
• The colors are the colors of the wedding flowers, feel to me like a spring afternoon event, and were carefully chosen so these could be printed on a personal inkjet printer.
• Sara is a master of hand-drawn type, so I had to get some of that going on.
• The white space on the inside makes a heart. 
• The white lace-like detailing around the edges was inspired by Mehndi henna designs typically worn by Pakistani brides {Sara's fiance is from Pakistan.}
• The watercolor texture is almost entirely self-indulgent, although in the end I did like how it lent itself to supporting the above goals.
