one thing- you may want to think about how the design will/can be altered with each mother's name if chosen for this contest. As with many designs, the challenge is making it work for longer names in the future :)

I really like how the colors come through "baby shower" and the whale is just adorable. Great job!!

VERY cool design. I agree with Andrea...maybe keep "baby shower" in the current style but rework the mom's name so it can work for any name. But this is so cool and very different than what normally gets posted.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments! And thank you Andrea and Amy for your helpful advice. This setup will work a lot better now that there's room for any mom's name and it looks better. Thanks again!

There is nothing NOT to like about this baby shower invitation. Equal parts cool and pretty. :)

I love love love the illustration and colors. And while I really like the font you chose, it might also be good with 'baby shower' in a different, softer font (without the stripes).
