Retro Sketches | Challenge #101

I admit, I was stalking our UPS guy on Tuesday, waiting for my (very heavy!) Studio Calico box to arrive. I love, love, love this month's kits... especially the Taffy add-on! And the gold embossed vellum, which is even prettier in person.

I used my kit to create a card for this week's Retro Sketches challenge:

The balloon was stamped in Limeade Ice ink (from Papertrey Ink), then die cut using Studio Calico's Balloons and Bows die. I also die cut a bow from the same die set. The gold sequins are from Studio Calico's new Color Theory line, and they match the gold vellum perfectly!

(Supplies - Stamps: (PTI) Wishes Come True. (Studio Calico) Taffy card kit. Ink: (Papertrey Ink) Black, Limeade Ice. Patterned Paper: Studio Calico. Sequins: (Studio Calico) Gold Color Theory pack. Enamel Dots: My Mind's Eye. Dies: (Studio Calico) Balloons and Bows. 

I have so many card ideas for the Taffy stamp set.... It's one of my favorite SC stamps to date! 

Thanks for looking!
