SOS 16

Y'know, I love when I make a card and then realize it totally fits the bill for a challenge :)
This week on SOS the challenge is Birds, Bugs or Beasts (no people!!) ... I made this card on Thursday to go with a friend's baby shower gift, and then realized today that it meets the challenge criteria... yes, mama's that slow :P Anyway, I had seen this card earlier in the day on the Simon Says Stamp blog and loved it, so made it my own... I quite like how it turned out... and almost no stamping! Just the sentiment from SU's Short & Sweet (my fave set EVAH) and Lawn Fawn's Bannerific. . And then I got to thinking, hey, there's a second shower gift I have to send in the same package, I should try a pink version... so I did! I used the stork & made a sentiment using Lawn Fawn's Plus One set.
ETA: the stork/owl are what qualifies these cards for the challenge...

And here are the cards with their matching envelopes...
