Birth Announcement Challenge: Special Prize Winners

One of the highlights for new parents is announcing the birth of their baby. The unveiling of all the precious details is almost as memorable to family and friends as it is to the parents themselves. We asked you, our talented Minted Community, to “wow” us with your creativity. We were beyond wowed with everyone’s gorgeous designs! Congratulations to all the winners and runners-up!
