Cars and Trucks or Ribbons and Bows

I made this card as the invitation for my sister baby shower. This is her first baby and she has decided that she isn't going to find out what she is having. So that's where the title came from. The opening line of the invitation says, "Cars and trucks or ribbons and bows. What she's having nobody knows!" I found this little saying online and I loved it. I thought it was perfect for the invites.

I had a hard time deciding on the design for this invite. She is decorating the baby's room in a Mickey/Minnie theme. I know that I wanted to stick with the classic Mickey theme but I wanted to make it really nice. I found a design that I loved over at Ginger Williams blog. You definitely have to go check her blog out if you haven't seen it. She makes the cutest things. I made a few changes to Ginger's designer but I kept it the same for the most part.

Also since she isn't finding out if she is having a boy or a girl I decided to make two versions of the invite. One Mickey version and one Minnie version. The guest won't really know this since they will only be getting on invite each but I thought it was a cute touch. I found the Disney font that I used on the cards online from a free gallery. My boss gave me this tip. I never knew that you could download free fonts. This is definitely something that I am going to remember.

I just love the way these cards came out! Hope you like them to and thanks for stopping by!
