Vote For Your Favorite Wedding Set

I'M SSSOOOOO EXCITED!  I have been updating my Wedding Invitation Portfolio and have added 5 new wedding invitations/ensembles in the last week.  On Wednesday morning I had a meeting with my wedding coordinator to deliver the portfolio, for she was meeting with a bride later in the day. 

I still had one more wedding ensemble on my desk not quite finished but knew I would have it done that day.  When I did finish it, I delivered it to my wedding coordinator who was meeting with the potential bride/client.  When the bride saw it she fell in love with it!  "What does it look like?" you ask.  Well, it's one of the invitations I will be making at my Do It Yourself Wedding Invitation Class.  The invitation set is the 05-19-2012 Wedding.  I will be making another set at the class but have yet to decide which one to do.

Sooooo, how about this?  You vote on which one you think I should teach at the DIY Wedding Invitation Class.  Post a comment with which one is your favorite.  I will keep the voting open until Friday, January 23rd.  Once all votes have been tallied, I will announce the winning set.  And the nominees are...

04-21-2012 (Diamond) Wedding Set

04-21-2012 (Pearl) Wedding Set

04-25-2010 Wedding Set

05-08-2010 Wedding Set

06-19-2012 Wedding Set

09-18-2010 Wedding Set
Okay, now that you have seen them, post a comment as to which one you think I should teach at my DIY Wedding Inactivation Class.  Thanks so much!  I look forward to seeing what everyone votes for!
