The Invitation Cards


During the Lunar New Year, it is a tradition for the younger generations to pay their respects at the houses of their elders. This year, it is a little special – we were handed our last red packets from the elders. As we did so, we took the opportunity to extend the invitation to attend our upcoming wedding.

Overall, whilst I can still pick out the issues with the card, I have to constantly remind myself that this is as close to perfection as I would be able to get with our given time frame. This card is unique to us and it fits what I’ve been looking for. That makes me a really happy girl.
