Baby Shower -SOS style

I have  been invited to a baby shower for a girl I've met through twitter, and in browsing her baby registry, have determined that her nursery is a "jungle" theme. So using that lil piece of info, plus some inspiration from this card on Pinterest (no, really), I came up with this... 
I love the little jungle-ish animals from SU's Fox & Friend (which I hadn't used in forever & a day).. and the umbrella is from my very fave retired set "Font of You". The parents-to-be have not found out the sex of their child, so I've matted the card & sentiment in both pink pirouette & baja breeze. The umbrella is colored in baja/soft suede/pink, then embossed with the pearly embossing powder I've had for-ever. Animals were colored in kraft/suede on sparkly paper, and cut out. And man, cutting around those little tails was a PITA. but well worth it, bc they're cute. I colored tummies/spots in blue or pink and lightly sponged the embossed white panel with baja for "rain". I mean, it IS a shower card, right? ;) 

SOS 48 is april showers/rain/water related - and hey, this has an umbrella on it, "rain" and the word shower. Plus a set I hadn't inked in forever (I think I"ve said that already, right? well, it's been so long, i mentioned it again)... Hope you like it!
