Retro Sketches meets Play Date Cafe

 
Hi everyone!  The weekend sure flew fast.......had some warmer weather which was wonderful!  At softball practice yesterday, my daughter could actually wear shorts and short sleeves!!!  That's a first!!! 
 
Today I have a card I whipped up using the sketch from Retro Sketches and the color story from The Play Date Cafe this week!  I haven't played with either of these challenges in a long time.  Using Verve's Bloom & Grow set, I stamped the blooms in the brightest pink and yellow I had and then die cut them using the coordinating dies HERE and HERE
 
The stripes on the side is a strip of Washi......thought I'd better stop hoarding and use some!
