RetroSketches | Challenge #65

There is nothing better than new stamps to spark creativity, and when my Papertrey Ink box arrived yesterday I had to pull it out and create a couple of new cards. This one is for this week's RetroSketches challenge:


I used Dawn McVey's new Ruby Rose set, Embroidered Blooms, and Background Basics - Newsprint:

(supplies - Stamps: (Papertrey Ink) Background Basics: Newspring, Ruby Rose, Embroidered Blooms. Ink: (PTI) Enchanted Evening, Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Melon Mambo, Aqua Mist. (Stampin' Up!) Basic Gray. Impression Plate: (PTI) Diamonds. Cardstock: (PTI) Enchanted Evening, Melon Mambo, Aqua Mist, Melon Berry, white. Patterned Paper: (PTI) Melon Berry Patterns Pack. Dies: (PTI) Ruby Rose. Other: buttons, twine, enamel dots.)

I love the layering possibilities of this set! The different layers of flowers + the striped leaves are gorgeous and so much fun to work with.

That's it for me tonight. Mark is working a lot of overtime this week (leaving me with the boys most of the time) and I am about to collapse from exhaustion! Have a great night and thanks for stopping by!
