"Big Band" Wedding Save the Dates

My friends Kristen and Glenn recently came to me with a fun "Retro Country Club" idea for their wedding save the date. Kristen let me run with my design ideas (love it when that happens!) and my "Big Band Save the Date" card was born. The couple loves to dance so I illustrated a "retro style" bride and groom in an elegant ballroom pose. I really wanted to incorporate a balloon into the card and Kristen happily obliged. Their colors are gold and turquoise so I chose matching gold envelopes and shiny gold ribbon for a little extra sparkle. When I look at this card I can almost hear the tinkling of music in the distance on a warm summer night at the country club. So looking forward to July 2011!
