Retro 44

Good morning, Friends! Another week has rolled around. And this is a week that a lot of parents have been waiting for - lol! School will be back in session tomorrow! Yea!! Nick is not that excited at all but I guess he will need to suck it up! I will be glad for the regular routine once again. And he will be starting basketball and soccer practices so that will be another plus. He has thoroughly enjoyed his break but I think even he is ready for the routine as well. 

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at Retro Sketches. This didn't come out like I had envisioned but I liked it. And it's super simple! I stamped the outline image from Oh, Hello in Crumb Cake onto a piece of Crumb Cake (I did stamp off once and that makes it a little hard to see in the photo). Then I rounded the corners and sponged the edges with Crumb Cake. I stamped the greeting in Early Espresso and adhered this panel to a card base of Crumb Cake. On the side, I adhered a strip of Print Poetry designer paper. Then I stamped the flower onto Very Vanilla using Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green markers. I cut it out and popped it up onto the card. Finally, I threaded a bronze button with linen thread and tied it to a piece of Victoria crochet trim. This is adhered to the card with glue dots. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
