The shower that I have been making decorations for was today.  It was a beautiful celebration.  They had a station for making bows,one for tie dying and an iron on applique area.  The appliques were cut with a cricut.  Guests picked a onesie and decorated it by ironing appliques on.  Baby Coral will be one well dressed infant.  The banner and wreath I made looked beautiful.  Here is the card and matching gift bag.
I cut the shape of the card using  I used DCWV paper.  The center emblem on the card is I also used the Stitched Banner Die.  To color the images I used Stampin Up and Staedtler watercolor pencils.  For the bag I used  I love this gift bag.  I wanted a bigger Elephant so I used the one that is in the Hello Baby set.  The ribbon is from Gorgeous Bits.
I purchased a few books for the baby's library and wrapped them in towels.  Then I added the card and the bag that had a Target gift card inside.
