Baby Shower Invites

Hello there! I hope everyone is having a fab Monday so far. I've been under the weather since Friday with a horrible constant, nagging cough and sore throat. I decided to stay home today to get some more rest in so hopefully I won't be sick during the Thanksgiving Holidays. I have a card today...well actually an invitation. My sister and I are working on my baby shower invites, and I hope we can get them all done by the end of this week...keeping my fingers crossed!!! Both of my baby showers are in January. My sister and SIL's are throwing my first shower and my Aunts are throwing the second one. I can't wait to see all my friends and family that I haven't seen since I've been pregnant.

Anywho, here is the invite (please excuse the poor quality of the pic...I'm so out of practice.) Please tell me what you think of the invite. I like it, but I'm not sure I like it 100%. The sketch is from Niki Estes of "My Paper Creations." I fell in love with the simplicity of it. I really like the different patterns of paper going on here, but I'm not sure I like the words Baby Shower stamped on the bottom. Should I add a tag or something with those words. Does it need something else?!?! What do you think?!?! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.



Well I hope everyone enjoys their afternoon. I'm headed back to bed for a nap! :) Hope to hear your suggestions soon! :) And if I'm not back before Thanksgiving, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by! ~ Jenn

Stamps: CTMH & Raspberry Suite Paper: CTMH, Prism Cardstock, Papertrey Ink Ink: Brilliance Graphite Coffee Bean, Copics Accents: Brads, Janome Sew Mini, Pop Dots

This is just darling! Maybe emboss the top kraft part above the lion! But I love the strips and stitching!

How exciting and love the invites - I don't think you need a thing - perfect as is! Are these the colors of the nursery? The theme?
