Sweet Little Baby



I played along with the "JUGS- Just us Girls" challenge this week. The challenge was to use pink and to paper piece.



For my card, I made a....you guessed it...plaid background using Waltzingmouse's Off Beat Backgrounds and a tone on tone polka dot background for the top portion. The little bunny is paper pieced from that same pattern.

I also used Sketch #35 from 2 Sketchs 4 You .

Enjoy your day!
Melissa
