Jennifer, this is great! I was trying to use this concept with my baby carriage card but it didnt quite turn out like I had envisioned. Now from seeing yours I can see what I was doing wrong. This is just great...I already said that didnt I? The colors you chose are wonderful!

What a great concept! I love the words and the shape of the giraffe ; )...Since this is such a great idea, have you considered placing some of the type on a curved path in selected areas? Kinda like the archway in this poster? http://cameronmoll.bigcartel.com/product/letterpress-poster-16x24 It might be helpful in articulating and delineating the form of the giraffe

what an absolutely adorable idea with the giraffe illustration. one small, small critique (o' i hate to be negative on this site... but this is truly just a small critique)... i think the design becomes a little distracting with the use of two different colors for "baby shower" and the name "audrey smith," as well as different type sizes. it think it is almost too many bells and whistles, if that makes sense. but really, a lovely, lovely idea. great job!

What a great concept! So fun! The only critique I have is that I wish the giraffe was made up of more serif fonts. I think serif fonts would make the giraffe shape a bit softer. I like your color combo too. :)
