baby shower invitations

We are so excited. There will be a new little one joining our extended family soon. My niece is expecting a little boy in August. We are preparing for her baby shower and I got to make thin invitations. They are into basketball so this is what I came up with. I found this cute saying for the front and then put all of the information on the back. Now we will be moving on to the rest of the decorations and planning the rest of the shower. Here is a picture of the invitation I put together. I made it on a 5.5"x4.25" blue card stock. The white squares are 2"x2", light blue squares are 2.25"x2.25". The light blue rectangle was 1"x 5" and then I printed the words out on my computer on white card stock. I punched the basketball with a 2" circle punch from orange card stock. Then I used my cuttlebug and swiss dots embossing folder. I drew on the lines and distressed the edges. Then used pop dots to add dimention. I printed all the information out on white card stock and them mounted that to the back of the card.
