Baby Announcements

My Mary Kay director asked if I would help design her baby announcements and of course I said YES! So she came over and I showed her a few different designs of cards and she picked this postcard style card which I originally found this idea over on SCS and I tweaked it to fit her needs. She brought over a picture of what the nursery was going to look like and of course SU had colors to match (if you haven't heard lately, that's why I started with SU, was because all of our cardstock, inks, pastels, markers, ribbon all match I love that fact, that I don't have to go searching all over and then come home with nothing that matches, ok done with my rant for today) so then we picked out the matching colors of the nursery and I have to say I absolutely LOVE the way this announcement looks. Her husband really wanted to do a sail boat theme so it was perfect that we could pull that into the announcement for him. I love how the turquoise just pops with the chocolate chip and river rock. We added the silver brad just for that last extra touch and of course the scallop edge was done with the slit punch. Anyway here is the card and I just think it's adorable. On the right side of the card is where she will post the stats of the baby. I hope you enjoy it!
