Retro Sketches | Challenge #131

Today I have a card for this week's Retro Sketches challenge. Here is this week's sketch:


For my card I used Pink Paislee's Switchboard stamps & die collection. When I purchased the stamps I didn't realize they were Made in China. I usually avoid Made in China stamps because the quality isn't the same as Made in the USA stamps. I knew die ink was going to be a problem, but I really wanted to use this adorable phone, so I pulled out my Avery Elle ink, and after a few unsuccessful attempts, I'm happy with the results.  

If you haven't tried Avery Elle inks, I highly recommend them. Great coverage and beautiful colors... and right now, they are 40% off at Joann.com. :)


Make sure to check out the Retro Sketches blog for more design team inspiration and to play along with us this week! Thanks for stopping by.
