My card today has been inspired by CASE this Sketch challenge blog which is also doing a Retro Case.

Although not strictly as CAS as it should be I'm still going to enter my card into their challenge.  

I kept with the idea of retro and went to the back of my cupboard and found some very old Stampin' Up Stamps - the little nappy pin is from Riveting, the Yeah Baby is from A Little Love stamp set and I don't know where the bird came from.  I used one of the Stitched framelits to cut out all the images and used Stampin Up ink in Soft Suede, Island Indigo and an old Bordering Blue.  

The paper is some I had on my desk and is from Marianne Design - Arctic Winter.  It spoke of babies to me so I chose to do a baby card.  The sentiment from Colourful Seasons is just perfect for baby cards.  And then I went off piste in a CAS sort of way - I still had my button jar out from yesterday's card so I added the three little start to the bottom and then I had added a pearl to the inside of the flower so three just also happened to land on the bottom of the card.  Gulp - not CAS! 

It certainly makes a change from blue or pink cards!
