Bubbles and Giraffes

Good morning everyone!

So, back before we found out we were expecting, my husband and I decided to book a party to celebrate our 5th Wedding Anniversary.... about a month after booking it we found out we were expecting... and so yea... things changed..

Once Luke arrived we confirmed that it was going to be a naming ceremony for him. Of course any event needs some swanky invites, and these ones came courtesy of my Pink Petticoat stash!
Using the beautiful Baby Giraffe and the equally amazing Bubbles paper collection!

I coloured the giraffe digitally before printing, a lot of them, and then assembling! Here is the finished stash!

And here is a close up of them!

Printing on linen paper is my favourite at the moment, it is so forgiving, my printer isn't the greatest and sometimes colour prints look a bit lacklustre! So the linen paper gives it some texture and is very forgiving!

So the giraffes were fussy cut and then silicone glued on some more linen card, then matted onto blue card, matted onto the bubbles card and then matted onto more blue card before finally being adorned to the white... err... linen card :)

Of course glitter was a must, the cute little bow tie has been sprinkled with some glitter :)
It fits in beautifully with the color scheme at Just Add Ink

The party was a great success, we had a wonderful, yet tiring day, and Luke was magnificent! :)
I'd like to enter this/these cards into the following challenges:

Dream Valley: Anything Goes
House of Gilli: Celebration
Can You Digi It: Favourite Animal
Bugaboo: Things with tails

Hope you're all doing okay

Lots of love
