My invitations were beautiful. They turned out exactly how I wanted and the map was gorgeous. She was fairly priced and even dropped them off at my house when there was confusion on the pick up date. She does fantastic work.Sent on 12/15/2014

After working with Nessa from CardGirl I can't imagine ever choosing another invitation design artist. Her talent and discerning eye helped create more beautiful wedding invitations than I ever could have imagined. Her professionalism made the entire process smooth. Her prices are reasonable. You won't regret hiring her. I highly recommend her!Sent on 12/30/2013

I cannot say enough about how amazing our wedding invitations, save the date's and every little paper detail turned out. They matched us and our wedding perfectly, the color, design, feel ... and people loved them, they actually took the time to call and tell us how beautiful our invites were. We really wanted our wedding to reflect us, and Nessa designed invitations that could not have been more us, and she made the whole process so much fun. She was endlessly flexible and patient with us, and we are so grateful!! Thank you!!Sent on 10/26/2008
