chalkboard wedding invitation design

hand-drawn chalkboard wedding invitation designI was thrilled to take on this project for The Green Kangaroo because the chalkboard trend has been sweeping couples off their feet — almost more than the mason jar craze!  To set this design apart from competitors’ invitations, I went for an entirely hand-drawn romantic feel, while keeping it relatively simple.
