Retro 5

Good morning everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start! My morning seems to have started with a headache. Ugh! I hate it when that happens! My sinuses are really bad right now. With the wind and all the dust and pollen in the air, I don't stand a chance! And poor Nick with his allergies! So far he seems to be holding his own. I hope that keeps up!

Today's card was inspired by a sketch at Retro Sketches. I thought this sketch was really fun! And one that could be used in so many ways!! I will definitely be trying this one again! I started with a card base of Crumb Cake and then added my circle elements in Basic Black and Lucky Limeade. I used the 1 1/4", 1" and 3/4" circle punches. Then I took another piece of Crumb Cake and rounded all four corners with the corner rounder. I stamped the splatter from Extreme Elements in Crumb Cake and sponged the edges in Crumb Cake, too. I stamped the ATV from Need for Speed in black StazOn and then stamped it again on a scrap piece of Crumb Cake. I added some highlights with the Lucky Limeade marker and cut it out. This one is popped up right over the other one and the panel is popped up onto the card. Then I took a strip of Lucky Limeade designer paper and stamped the greeting from Happiest Birthday Wishes in black StazOn. I glued this to a piece of Basic Black card stock and added three brads then popped it up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
