Retro For You


I'm back again with another card which uses the colours from this week's ColourQ challenge:

This time I'm combining it with the Designer Drafts challenge at Paper Smooches SPARKS:


And also with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is heat or dry embossing:


I didn't intend for the panel to be that shape but I'd tested the flower design on an odd piece of card waste, and I thought the shape suited the style of the flower, so I kept it in the final design.

Stamps: Paper Smooches Reflections, Bold Blooms, Simply Said
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug
Ribbon: stash
