Poppy Invitation

I finally did finish up all of the envelopes for the wedding of my friend's daughter. I had skipped a whole page so I recently had to do 25 more. I think I really am finished now. This is the actual invitation and I decided to paint some poppies on it. Cranes paper takes watercolor very nicely. Oh, and by the way, the calligrapher who did Chelsea Clinton's invitations did the calligraphy for this invitation.

Gorgeous Martha! Will it be a gift for the bride & groom? A friend of Tom's parents did a lovely watercolor on one of our wedding invitations, and we cherish it!
