Shower Invites

I've been just can't tell on my blog.  One of my best friends is going to have her first baby in June and I wanted to make her invites for her shower.  They are going to be surprised with the gender and are painting the nursery gray and white.  She also has been attracted to elephant accents.  After a few trials this is what I ended up with.

So I must admit that I ran out of ribbon while making 30 invites.  I headed to the box craft store and I know why I love Stampin' Up even more now!  The ribbon didn't tie or cut as nice as Stampin' Up's ribbon! UGH.  Lesson: accept no substitutes!
