You're Invited

Happy Monday! I'm glad this day is over. Work is very busy right now and at least the day goes quickly when you are so busy. We had a beautiful day weather-wise and I think tomorrow is supposed to be similar. We did get a little rain over the weekend but we could use some more. I won;t be complaining though. My brother's home is in the path of the Texas fires so I am praying that they get rain very soon.

My card tonight is a possible invitation for my MIL's 80th birthday party. It's my job to make the invitations. So here is one of my attempts.

I used 2 embossing folders: Just My Type (the flowers up the right side) and Swiss Dots both from Cuttlebug. I used markers to give the embossed flowers some color. The trellis is a punch. The flowers are two different die cuts from Heartfelt Creations and the vine and leaves are a Cricut cut. I'm not thrilled with how my handwriting turned out. I think I need to use a fatter marker. What do you think? How can I improve this? I'm entering this card in several challenges:
Thanks for sharing some of your day with me. I love your comments and appreciate you leaving one for me. Have a wonderful week!

Donna this is such a pretty card. You did a very good job using the embossing folders for your background. Thank you for joining us this week in the challenge at Joan's Gardens.

I think it is very pretty Donna. I love the colors! Could you maybe instead of using vine leaves use individual leave on the flowers (3 per) and then write the 'you're invited' on the leaves? I like it just the way it is but if you wanted to try something else that is an idea.
