Amanda's Baby Shower Invitation

Hello everyone, here is something that I came up with for my daughter Amanda's Baby Shower Invitation.  I emailed this to her last night to get the final approval, and I am happy to say, I just got word from her that she is VERY happy with it and that I may proceed.  Boy, am I glad to hear that, because I think it turned out adorable.  She had informed me earlier that she did NOT want pastels and wanted to use the colors she is using in her nursery.   So last week when she was here I took her out to my Craft Studio and let her pick out the paper she wanted.  So at least I knew she would like that much of it.  I just had to put it together and add the embellies this last week.  The inside flap will have another piece of  SU Very Vanilla CS cut with the Spellbinders Scallop Rectangel and will have the places where she is registered.  And the
other side will have another SU Very Vanilla CS Scallop Rectangle with the info of the Baby Shower such as:
What it is: 
For Whom:
When it is:
Where it is:
RSVP:

I don't have all of the details yet, but just making all of the invitations will take me a little time, especially since I have to cut most of it out by hand.   I originaly cut the baby bottle out with the Cricut New Arrival, but we didn't like the nipple on that one, so I revamped it and made this one.  So now I can't cut it out with the Cricut and anyway since I'm cutting it out on a fold it wouldn't work anyway.  So I just told the girls to bring their scissors one weekend and we will just have a cutting party!! lol  They can cut and I will watch the grand babies ~ sounds like a plan to me!!!!
This also qualifies for a few challenges out there, which are :
Your Next Stamp Challenge ~ Spring Colors
A Spoon Full of Sugar ~ Spring
Creatalicious Challenge ~ A little something
The Pink Elephant ~ Ribbon
Here's what I used:
SU Certainly Celery CS ~ bottle
SU Very Vanilla CS ~ nipple & Scallop rectangle
SU More Mustard CS~  Rectangel on front
Bazzill Red  ~diaper pins
My Mind's Eye ~  polka dot
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
Brayered the Swiss Dots with SU Certainly Celery Ink
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Rectangles
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scallop Rectangles
Hero Arts White and Cream Art Flowers sponged with
SU Marigold Morning Ink
Imaginisce 1.5" Ring Around the Rosies ~ sponged with
SU Pacific Point Ink
Button
SU Sincere Salutations Stamp ~ stamped in
SU Tangerine Tango Ink
MS Butterfly Punch
Satin Ribbon
Thanks so much for dropping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!!!!
Come back and visit anytime!!!
Hugs  :o)
