Ellie Shower!


For a friend's baby shower. The bedding they picked for the nursery is the cute Zanzibar collection from Babies R Us, so this card was inspired by one of the pillows! I love it when I have an item to use as inspiration - makes it so easy to pick colors! To make the border, I wrapped green thread across the scallops. The tuft of grass is just a small section of the A Muse grass stamp. Then I used a blue Stardust pen to make the little drops of water from Ellie's trunk.
