Peach Limeade Party

Spring Greetings, friends!
I hope you are enjoying your Spring as much as I am. Every year when Spring arrives, I undergo an internal rejuvenation & a renewal of energy which is accompanied by a giddy happiness. I'm so happy to be done with winter even if it was a mild one here in the Midwest. I love the smells & the colors of Spring too. And speaking of colors, aren't the colors in this card wonderful? They are Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, & Peach Parfait which are the colors in the Create with Connie & Mary Color Challenge (CCMC193)
I used the sketch from a fairly new challenge blog & brand new to me called Retro Sketch; below is the third sketch (RS3).

My supplies are all SU! except for the white embroidery floss used with the buttons and for the tuck in the ribbon. The stamp is from the cute little set called "Everybunny". All the images in that set are just adorable. The DPs are Everyday Enchantment (from Sale-a-bration) & the 2010 In Color Paper Stack (Peach Parfait strip). There's Peach Parfait ribbon & Pumpkin Pie designer buttons. I colored my image using ink & blender pens. Lastly, it is likely difficult to see but the white background is subtly embossed with small dots Texturz plate.  

Thanks for stopping by! I treasure your comments and our friendship. 
Have a great week! 
Marilyn
