Explosion Box-Baby Shower Card

It's been a little longer then I would have liked since I posted last but hey life is BUSY!!

Well...I have two baby showers to attend at the end of October.  This blogging thing does make me get to the cards I have to make ahead of time...I'm usually the night before kind a girl!

The first shower is for a baby girl...yep that's an easy one...all frills and lace, glitter and girly colours!!  The boy will be a challenge!
