Retro 62

Good morning, Friends! Wow! It has really been raining around here! I think it rained most of the night and it's still going strong! Woohoo!! We are so happy for that! I love the rain! I even got to hear thunder a couple of times yesterday! I'm just so glad it's not snow around here! I did see on the weather report that it would be snowing in the mountains. And that makes me happy when I don't have to travel over them - lol! Moisture! We really need it! I think the rain is inspiring me to stamp today! I hope to find my mojo again. 

Today's card was inspired by the sketch from Retro Sketches. I once again was drawn to use the Epic Day designer paper. So I took a piece of that and wrapped a piece of Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon around it. I tied a Daffodil Delight button to the ribbon using linen thread. This piece is adhered to a strip of Gumball Green that was punched with the scallop edge border punch. Then I popped this up onto a card base of Crumb Cake. Then I stamped the cupcake bottom from Create a Cupcake in Crumb Cake and the top in Calypso Coral onto Very Vanilla. I punched these out with the Cupcake builder punch and popped them up onto the card. I stamped the sentiment in Crumb Cake onto a strip of Very Vanilla and flagged both ends. This is adhered to the card. Finally I punched a flower from the Epic Day designer paper using the itty bitty shapes punch pack and added it to the cupcake with a pearl. Oh and everything got a sponge bath in Crumb Cake. :) Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!!
