Baby Shower Invitation Challenge: Special Prize Winners

A beautifully designed baby shower invite is not only functional, but also serves as a baby album keepsake for generations to come. We challenged you, the talented Minted Design Community, to freshen up our collection with the most original baby shower invitations the world has ever seen. We were beyond blown away with the amount of creativity and risks taken in this challenge.
Congratulations to all the winners and runner-ups!
