Retro Hello Friend

Yesterday's card was based on a bold, geometric sketch--which I loved! Today's card is based on a sketch that is a little more "frou-frou," which is harder for me to accomplish. I thought about this sketch all day and I had planned a completely different card, using Typeset DSP and Blushing Bride, but somehow Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar were calling to me instead. In fact, yesterday when I was using the 2014-16 in-color collection I thought that I had abandoned the 2013-25 in-colors. And I felt bad about that.

So the sketch over at the Retro Sketches challenge blog looks like this:

I grabbed some Crisp Cantaloupe and Baked Brown Sugar card stock and designer series papers and the also neglected "Four Frames" stamp set and went to work. Oh my gosh! I used so many different patterns and punches. This is a bit out of my comfort zone...but I like the colors together and the gold and pearl accents, so I think it works.
