Baby Shower Invitations

I actually made these a couple of weeks ago.  The theme of the shower is ladybugs and sunflowers.  My friend happens to love sunflowers.  The ladybug is for the's a girl but has no name its just ladybug :)

I had to make a lot of these so I kept it pretty simple.  I know there is a sunflower cut on the Walk In My Garden cartridge but I really did not want to put that many layers together on that many flowers so I went with something simpler.  The ladybug is from Walk In My Garden.  The flowers and the grass both came from Straight From The Nest.  I used my Gypsy to lay everything out so that I could cut it efficiently.  Surprisingly doing 25 invitations only took a couple of hours.

The background paper came from Joann's, the butterfly is from K&Company sticker set, I used a white gel pen to accent the leaves, copper Stickles on the inside of the flowers, and finally the stamp is from Pink By Design Big Thoughts set.  The inside is decorated too but I didn't get a chance to take a picture before I had to mail them out. 

The most important thing was that my friend loved them.  :)  Only 2 weeks left until her shower.
And just because I like her so much, I'm making her a special cake that looks like a sunflower, which was inspired by Sarah's (Pink Cricut) post "For Peep's Sake".  Click on the link to see her post.  I'll let you all know how it comes out. :)
Good night!!
