About the Design

comments from the designer:

Inspired by victorian thaumatrope bird spinners. I would use this for a pretty bird-themed party. I would send a circular, spinning invite so guests could have a little fun with a classic illusion toy.

I would create a coordinating thaumatrope invite, with a bird and party details on one side, and a cage on the other.

Absolutely love this! My favorite of this competition. I think both colorways are stunning. I personally like the brighter, version, but I think there is a demand for more muted and unusual palettes right now. That probably doesn't help you decide!
