The Challenge


There is no feeling more magical than for new parents to welcome their newborn into the world, and a baby shower with friends and family is the most memorable gift any mum-to-be could ask for. A baby shower invitation should set the tone for an event filled with warmth and love. Some of the most popular choices use pastel colours, illustrations, and soft typography while keeping the design simple and easy to read. For this design challenge just design 2x invitations using the guidelines provided: the rest is up to your imagination!
