Retro Sketches #34

Hi Everyone! I had some down time this weekend and was able to play along with Retro Sketches #34. I've been so darn busy, it felt good to sit down at my craft table and actually do a challenge. Here is the sketch:


And here is my card!


I used the new OOh La La paper from Momenta and combined it with some fun flowers, pink lace, a peral flourish and a Unity stamped sentiment.


The colors of these papers are very vintage-y and I had a hard time photographing this card. The cloudy sky was not helping me with the lighting!!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend...hello Monday!!
