MMSC95 Pretty Pansies/ Baby Bunny

This weeks Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge is my last one for a while with two cards - are you shocked!?!? LOL!   I am not still in the Design Team and Priscilla's Design Team but this Thursday I am going to be having eye surgery for Diabetic Cataracts and my recovery time is not certain - just quietly, I would love to be back here online on Friday - LOL but we both know that is not going to happen!!  LOL!

 My posts for the next two weeks will be prescheduled and will only have the basic details - but they will have a card and the sketch!! LOL  But enough about that and onto this weeks challenge!!

I have used an image from this weeks sponsor Deedees Digi's  I love pansies and thoroughly enjoyed creating with these.  I  have also used some of the gorgeous Vintage Sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang on my doily.  This stuff is fabulous - don't let the colour in the bottle fool you - the gorgeous vintage tones in this spray were an added delight for me - especially as I love anything vintage!!  I have actually found these have a lot more shimmer than some of the other products on the market - so are well worth checking out!

My card for the "priscillastyles" Design Team is created using one of Priscilla's new images - how adorable is this little Bunny.  Although my first instinct is to create an Easter card - I quickly decided to make a card that was either for a New Baby or a one year old -  what do you think!??!

Keeping the colours soft and pastel makes it work either way!

  The Spellbinders Lacy Circles have been cut and embossed with my Grand Calibur - I love giving this thing a workout - it is so easy and gives such crisp lines!!

These cards are for the following challenges:
Aly's Snday Challenge - Anything Goes - both cards
Cheerful Stamp Pad - Spring - card 1
