Minted Design Challenge

I have always wanted to enter a Minted Design Challenge and just haven't gotten around to it. Until today!

I finally had a contest that I had a great idea for (inspired by my recently expecting friends) and time to flesh out the concept. My friends are expecting a baby and want to be surprised by the gender at the birth. Naturally their colors are yellow and her Nursery is going to be Pooh themed. Pooh is obviously a very heavily trademarked Disney property, so I went with the bumble bee from all of Pooh's lovely honey pots.

I wanted to keep the design simple, to show of the real reason why the parents are sending out this invite in the first place! Add a stripy background for a little extra oomph and a birth announcement was born.

Jacqui's Graduation

Jacqui is graduating from college and her family wanted to throw a party. Jacqui wanted a soft color scheme and decided on light blue and greens. Inspired by that color palette, I went with a light floral and leaf pattern.

Jacqui's Graduation Celebration

While studying art, Jacqui came upon a piece written by Lord Byron that meant something special to her. We included this quote as well as her college majors on the insert.

Jacqui's Graduation Celebration
We gaze and turn away, and know not where, dazzled and drunk with beauty, till the heart reels with its fulness; there-for ever there-chained to the chariot of triumphal art, we stand as captives, and would not depart.
– Lord Byron
