My first envelope project

I was beyond excited (and a little terrified!) to receive my first envelope commission last week.  My co-worker asked me to hand-address these envelopes for her friend's wedding shower in May.  Since they were cotton paper, I chose gouache as my ink in a charcoal gray to match the yellow and gray invitations.  I tried a few different kinds of fonts and settled on a script font for the names and a basic text font for the address part.  I hadn't really done a lot with uppercase letters yet so this was a great way to practice.  Hope you enjoy!
