About the Design

comments from Candice:

Children's birthday parties remind me of how excited kids are to become another year older and how time seems to lurk by so slowly up until their big day. This card is about the joyfulness of turning ten with the key visual element being years checked off like days on a calendar. Some wistful brush strokes give the piece a little added dimension and direction in the composition.

The script text reads: "join the celebration" and "plan for an afternoon of adventure and a picnic dinner." At full size the script is clearly legible (17 & 14pt size.) Comments are welcome!
