YW in Excellence

In our church we have a program where the Young Women work on improving themselves.  This month is a night where we honor their success.  It is called Young Women in Excellence (or YW in Excellence).  Here is the layout I’ve been toying with for our invitations and such.  I wanted it simple, clean and easy to print off on  cardstock.  Our theme is Women Of Virtue and is modeled after a program by Jessica Roberts found on Sugardoodle.  Like Jessica, I chose gold as my accent color since gold represents the value Virtue.  I printed them on pearlescent paper found in an 8 1/2 X 11 pad at JoAnn’s.

UPDATE:  We had our Evening in Excellence and it went great!  Instead of having the YW memorize their parts, we used an overhead projector to make a teleprompter on the back wall of the RS room.
