Retro 21

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is going great! It sure does seem to be flying by!! I am really glad that I was able to sleep in a little. It seems like I have been getting up so darn early for one reason or another. But not today! Later this morning I am taking a class with some other friends on how to weave a basket! I am pretty excited about this! It's something new and different!

Today's card was inspired from the sketch challenge at Retro Sketches. A super simple layout and card! And something a little different! I took a piece of Midnight Muse and used my 1 3/4" circle punch to round the top. I flagged the bottom and then punched a hole at the top to thread some crochet ribbon through. I used a bit of linen thread to tie a bow around that. This is popped up onto a card base of Crumb Cake. Then I took a piece of Summer Starfruit to the Big Shot and used my Delicate Doilies sizzlet to cut a small doily. This is adhered to the tag. The Very Vanilla piece is cut with the Apothecary Accents framelits. I stamped the sentiment from Tea Shoppe in Soft Suede and then sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. I added two silver brads before adhering it to the card. Then I stamped the tea cup in Pool Party on a scrap of Very Vanilla and cut it out. This is popped up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
