Baby Shower Invites

Exciting news!  I’m going to be an aunt for the first time!  My sister is having a baby at the end of April, so it was time to get together invitations for a Baby Shower.  My sister’s nursery theme is little lambs, so I wanted to tie into that with the card.  Her favorite color is also yellow, and they’re waiting to find out if the baby’s a boy or girl, so I’m counting this card as a win on multiple counts!

These cards went through a number of iterations…I kept feeling like they just didn’t look as great as I wanted.  I’m pleased with the outcome and the fun gate fold.

This is the first time I put my cute sheep stamp to use, and obviously, also the first time I’ve used the “Baby Shower” sentiment!

I’m entering this in to Darnell Knauss’s NBUS challenge…So excited to have another NBUS challenge to enter!  (Thanks Darnell!)

The baby shower stamp is from Sizzix, the sheep is “Lambie Pie” from Stampabilities, the sentiment frame is from Sizzix, and the frame around the sheep is from Stampin’ Up.  I watercolor penciled the sheep…he sure turned out cute!

I love how you cared enough to design them with your sister’s little lamb theme and the color yellow. You are going to be a fantastic Auntie!! Thank you so much for playing for the third time in my NBUS Challenge #3!! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell
