Sweet Pea

My entry for a couple of challenges: Jitterbuggin' and 365 Cards. The challenge at Jitterbuggin' was to follow the sketch, use pastel colors, use a Cricut cut, and use at least one button. Since it was pastel colors I thought a baby card would be perfect, especially since I have some cousins who are expecting. I used New Arrival for the pea pod and the "sweet pea" sentiment. The challenge at 365 Cards was a "Create-your-own" sort of challenge. They gave us four lists and we were supposed to pick one item from each list and create a card using them. List A - Pick a Pattern: I chose toile, which is my background. List B - Color Trio: I went with blue, lavender and green. List C - Embellishment: I chose to use buttons (mostly because they were required for the Jitterbuggin' challenge also). List D - Shape: I went with the circle, which is behind the pea pod. I think it is a nice sweet card that any one of my cousins would love to receive, that's what I hope at least.
