So back to the baby shower card, sorry, I was side-tracked for a moment there. I opened my DSP album to the Nursery Suite Specialty paper and wow, SU has made it easy for me to design a card with no gender specified.

I am always needing a male birthday card so I decided to use the technique "Poppin' Pastels" along with the stamp set - Lovely As a Tree, I hope SU never retires this set, I really love it. My friend, Marsha Reed, go check out her blog: Coffee Pot Cafe, had a tutorial on using the Dotted Scalloped Ribbon Border Punch in a different way, so I used her tutorial on the following card.
