RS #4 & PDC #125 ~ Color Splash!

Hello! Where has this week gone? Seems to have flown by, but that's ok the weekend is almost here! Today's card is for two challenges. The latest Retro Sketches and The Play Date Cafe. I truly love this Retro sketch and will use it again for sure. This week at the Cafe we are to use black, white and a splash of brown. And check out their inspiration photo...fabulous!!!

  

I think this one is pretty self explanatory since I used the sketch. My DPs are from MME ~ Lost and Found: blush with the exception of the white label die cut (MFT: well worn greetings). It's a scrap of paper I purchased at Joann Etc. I inked up my PSX baby bunny again. Perhaps the gentleman rabbit in the inspiration photo is his papa!! A sprinkling of chipboard buttons, a milk chocolate button and a couple of pretty sheer coffee ribbon flowers nestled this wee fur baby in quite nicely! I am so happy with this card! You'll notice I didn't add a sentiment. If I don't need this one for an Easter card I can use it for a baby card. So I'll add something when necessary!

Thanks for stopping by today! Blessings ~Lisa

Awesome card, Lisa. ;-) I think this would make a lovely, classy baby card, if not a delightful Easter card. Very clever to wait on the sentiment. Love those little buttons and flowers, and the stripes and polka dots with the text banner are great. Love it! ;-)
