Wishes for Baby Cards & Jar!

I saw the cutest idea on Pinterest the other night and knew I had to make some of my own. They were some little cards that read: Wishes for baby. The design did not go well with my style. So, I made some of my own using my baby shower colors and theme. I also made it into a free Pdf for you. :) I know you may not be using these colors, but if by chance you are, here is a freebie!
I love the idea of looking back at these cards when she gets a bit older, and reading all the cute messages that were left in this jar. I am only inviting family and close friends, I'm sure they will love leaving her a message too. :)
I also figure that you could use this idea for weddings and birthdays. The possibilities are endless when it comes to crafts!
I'm addicted to Mason jars and doilies at the moment. I just had to replicate the Valentine jar I made, I added fabric and lace this time around, I LOVED using fabric and some vintage lace.
Here is what I used:
A Mason jar
Vintage lace
Fabric (very cheap at Joanns)
American Crafts ribbon & Thicker letter
Shabby Chic Crafts-NEW! Spring Grandma Doilies tag
Scalloped circle
Inside jar- (Free Baby Wish Cards)
Twine (color-Blossom from The Twinery)

Thanks for stopping by! I really enjoy your comments and suggestions. I appreciate my readers SO much. It helps to know you are actually sharing this with someone. :) Thanks peeps!
xoxo, Veronica

I love this craft! I am using it for my sister's bridal shower next weekend. I am going to have the guests write their advice on a card and put it in the jar. Thanks for your inspiration!

This is ADORABLE! I'm throwing a shower for my best friend in a few weeks and wanted to do "Wishes for Baby" the color are exactly the same too! Any chance I could still get the PDF file you created? I can only hope my project will turn out as cute as yours did!
