Baby "sprinkle"

My good friend will be having a baby in May and I am giving her a baby sprinkle! A sprinkle is for a 2nd, 3rd ect.. child in case you didn't know what a sprinkle was. I know I hadn't heard the term before a friend told She loves monkeys and that is the theme they have gone with for the new baby's nursery. I wanted to make invites that matched the bedding and these were what I came up with.

The invites are a standard A2 size, the cream card stock is cut 1/4" smaller and then I used my corner chomper for the cloud corners. The monkey is cut from Create a Critter at 3.75" I only used the monkey's head, I also had to cut off the arm and reposition them on the invite.  The zebra paper is a strip if white card stock that I ran through my Cuttlebug the folder is from Sizzix and I don't have the name but it looks like zebra to me. All I did to it was color in the raised parts with black to really make it pop. I then added a banner with the new baby's name for a personal touch. The banner is from Carousel, I had to weld 2 of them together on my Gypsy and then trimmed off what I didn't need. the Banner was cut at 2.09". I printed off the poem and info on vellum and corner chomped just the bottom corners. I finished them off by adding a tiny flower and gem to the monkey and a touch of purple sparkle to the ears.

Very cute. Loved the poem and the colors that you used. Makes it look girlish. Great work for someone that has not been feeling well.
Love you.
