Baby Shower Strawberries & Glitter Card

My niece is having a little girl soon and her name is Juna Monroe.
This glitter and watercolor card is personalized just for her.

The biggest inspiration for this card came from her {strawberry} themed baby shower and from the tiny {red shoes} her Mommy featured in her sweet "it's a girl" announcement pictures that also included big brother.
Glitter and lace came to mind for her name and trim.
The strawberries, leaves and blossoms are in watercolor.
