Jody and Nickie's Baby Shower Invite

I grew up with Jody (the father-to-be). So when his mom called me to do his baby shower invites, it was a blast from the past. I was so happy to learn that he and his wife were expecting their first bundle of joy - a baby girl!
Nickie loves dragonflies and I believe that is what she is using a theme for their little girl's room. So with that said I designed a simple, panel invite with a playful dragonfly graphic. Jody's mom wanted to make sure the invite was not flimsy (she had ordered their wedding shower invitations from somewhere and was unhappy with the paper stock quality). So the invite was printed onto a white metallic paper and then attached to a thick, pink, metallic cardstock. The dragonfly graphic was printed onto the metallic pink envelopes to pull the invite together. 
When I dropped them off, she was so excited because they were perfect. It was nice to work with her and to see her again - it had been years! It's funny how things work - I am working with her AGAIN because her other son is having a baby and she's throwing yet another shower!
