Birthday invite C&C needed UPDATE w/ poem

This is the practice run for T.J.'s birthday invitation. It didn't scan well due to the vellum overlay but you can get the idea. I like the vellum in person. Upon scanning I noticed that I should probably ink the stem and leaves because they didn't show up well. Any comments and criticism is appreciated because these will be going out to people and I don't want it to look stupid.

Here is what it will say:
We're Buggin' Because
T.J.'s Turning Two

On Saturday the 10th of May
Come to our party so we can play
At 2 o'clock you should BUZZ on by
To eat some WORMS or catch a
BUTTERFLY
We'll be serving DIRT and Bar-BEE-Q
It will be lots of fun, hope to see you.

(Address at bottom)

i personally love them and think they are great.
i agree that you should prob ink the stem and leaves.

are you putting the invite part on the vellum or the underneath w the bugs etc?

Do you mean the party details? I will be printing those on the back in plain white with maybe a few tiny bug accents. I'm still trying to work on what it will say. I want it to be kinda cutesy.

Aww, that is cute. I love it. You are doing a great job, the wording sounds great. I love that part the most even though the card itself is just too adorable.

I think it looks fabulous! Inking the stem and leaves would probably make them stand out some more, but I also love it as you have it now. Very cute!

Did it myself! Biggrin It took a while. I couldn't quite get the syllabel counts right so i was afraid it was going to read weird.
