We are hosting a small birthday brunch for Ellerie at the end of the month. I am not so big on "themes" but I am VERY big on sunshine and my girl so for this party I decided to make the theme : "the sun." Not so much, "you are my sunshine" as "your first trip around the sun." (I know. Kind of odd but I love it.)
I picked one of my favorite recent photos of her (face full of carrots and all) and paired some text with a sun I sketched on my tablet. Fonts are GeoSansLight and Grand Hotel.
Since I wanted our extended family to feel included but also realized it's crazy that they'd make the trip out to San Diego for a birthday party I added a note on the backside and sort of turned this card into more of a birthday announcement than an invite. But hey - who doesn't love mail and grinning baby photos?
I duplicated my sun sketch to create a fun little pattern to decorate the backside. These cards were printed by overnightprints.com who I use often for stuff like this that I want to design from scratch.
We are so excited for this party. Right now the plan is lots of yellow flowers, french toast, pickles, Bloody Mary's and if I get it together - a cake that looks like the sun! Can't wait to celebrate our girl.
