Baby Shower Invitation

Thanks for all the Congratulations on my published effort, both here and by email. It was interesting that some of you said that you recognised my style...I didn't know I had a style! LOL
I guess if I do it would be this: clean and simple...I'm not sure if that's a good thing, though!
This is the Baby Shower invitation I made for my sister-in-law:

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaShe's pregnant with twin girls (yikes!), and I'm hosting her baby shower in a couple of weeks (double yikes!). She's due in December, but we all figure it's more likely to be November, judging by her girth!
These were really quick to make. I stamped a small flower from 'Little Pieces' all over some Pretty in Pink cardstock, and highlighted the centres with my white gel pen. I punched out a circle using the Round Tab punch twice. The inside of the card is lined with a piece of Regal Rose cardstock, with the Shower details printed on the bottom. I stamped the babies from 'All in the Family' onto Whisper White cardstock in Black Stazon. The heads and bodies are 2 separate stamps, and I didn't need the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position them. I then punched them out with the Scallop circle, and coloured them lightly with Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose inks using my Blender pens. The "You're Invited" stamp is from 'Cheer and Wishes' and has been stamped in Black Stazon also. A piece of pink gingham ribbon wrapped around the spine of the card finishes it off. I wheeled some envelopes with the 'Daisy Dash' wheel (sooo quick and easy), in pink, of course!

Edited to add: A few people have asked how I did the trick of making a circle with the Round Tab punch. You can see how HERE. :o)
