Invitation inspiration: pattern-palooza!

(Oh, hello gorgeous multi-pattern invitation from Bella Figura!!)

You know what I've been totally digging recently? Pattern-driven invitations, that's what! I've always been a pattern girl. I love rich, interesting patterns and have been a big fan of overlapping patterns to create interesting layers of design.

Using pattern on an invitation is such a fun and easy way to pull in a design element without being thematic or literal. Whether it's a band of pattern, a full background or just isolated elements from a specific design - I think you'll agree that patterns make for some pretty stellar designs!

Some pattern pops for your peepers:

(A pretty textile-inspired design from Wiley Valentine)
