"This is a lovely invitation. I love the design and was very excited about it. I didn't have the time to get a sample, and I should have. The areas that look like glitter aren't (which they now tell you) and the area that looks like lace also isn't. I thought it was layered when I ordered mine, so didn't mind paying as much as I did. When it came in flat I was disappointed. Also be aware that the tan/beige areas are much darker on the actual invitations. I've viewed this invite on three computers and all were a pale color, but the actual invitation was far more brown than I was expecting. This was for a black and white event, so while nice, it doesn't work quite as well. DEFINITELY get a sample before opening, so you know exactly what you're getting."
