It's a Baby Shower!

Just kidding.  You thought I was pregnant, right? 
Ok, so maybe it's not exactly a baby shower, but it is...

 Minted's baby shower invitation board challenge! 

If you're not familiar with Minted, it is "a global community of independent graphic designers and an online store that prints and sells the best of their designs in the form of paper goods."  Since so many independent designers contribute to the site, there is a design for every occasion and every preference.  If you recall, I ordered Lucia's 1st birthday invitations from Minted.  (They were technically categorized as a baby announcement!)  Minted has more than just cards and invitations, there is also gorgeous party decor and darling nursery prints (there are a few that I'm eying for Lulu's "big girl room").

For a chance to win Minted credit, all you have to do is choose your favorite baby shower invitation, create an Inspiration Board with it, and post it on your blog/website.  If you love browsing Pinterest and making style boards, this is such a fun challenge, with some AMAZING prizes.  The grand prize is for the most beautiful board is $500 to spend on Minted.   Each Monday (starting this upcoming Monday) through February 25, there will be two winners chosen for a $100 credit, one with the most favorites and the other chosen randomly.  For more details, instructions on how to use Minted's boards feature, and to get started, visit the challenge page.

Take a look at the board I made:

Can't wait to see what you come up with! 

I've never hosted a baby shower, but designing this board made me excited for the day I do!  Is there anything better than celebrating new life and pampering a cute expectant mama?

I will receive Minted credit in return for this post.  See Disclosure Policy
