It's a Baby Shower! (and a vote)

In my family we're all so excited because my sister Yvette is pregnant with her first baby (after many years of trying). She's due in July, and after much persuasion, I managed to convince her to let me throw her a Baby Shower. Of course I sat down to design some invitations right away, before she could change her mind! My brief was "not too cutesy" and to use bright colours. We know the baby is a boy, so I didn't have to stick to a gender-neutral colour scheme. Being the rather excited Auntie-to-be that I am, I got a little carried away and designed 3! This is where you guys come in...I thought I would show you all 3 and put it to a vote. Let me know which one is your favourite!

Number 1 "Baby Star"
: Number 2 "Baby Giraffe": Number 3 "Baby Jumpsuit":

What do you think?
