PDCC #105 & WMC #74

Hi there, hope everyone had a good weekend! We had lunch out with my parents yesterday and trick or treat in our neighborhood last night. I had the sweetest little guy stop by dressed as Elmo who insisted he was Big Bird!!! So cute! Our neighbor's one year old daughter and her slightly older cousin were the most adorable lion cubs sitting face to face in a wagon! Today was nice and quiet, just readying a few things outdoors for the coming winter weather. I did have a quick minute or two to put together a card for two challenges. I'm using the colors from the Play Date Cafe:  kraft/taupe, flesh & cadet blue and the Wee Memories: brads, buttons or bows.




My card  is pretty simple. I started with a kraft base layered with a sweet Webster's Pages polka dot paper then used a Martha Stewart lattice punch on the cadet blue panel. Next I stamped my teddy bears from Stamps by Judith in sepia ink and colored with a taupe marker and flesh colored pencil. The kraft butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and the sentiment is a portion of a Rubber Cottage stamp. A few bitty buttons, a chipboard button tied with twine and that's it for me! Thanks for taking a look!!! ~Lisa

This is sweet, Lisa :) Love the lazy teddies, repeating polka dots in the bg and the star, and the butterflies are the perfect finish!

What a cute card, Lisa! I love the way you tied the sentiment to the images, and how cute those images are! I don't think I've ever seen such cute Teddy bears. Great job on both challenges!

This is fabulous! I love the layout, and you got the colours so perfectly! I was a bit stumped when I saw the colour 'Flesh'! This would be a perfect New Baby card too!
