I have been visiting the retro Sketches web site and working up the nerve to try one!
I just love what I have been seeing there! Such great cards! Such inspiration!

So I came up with this card! 
I also got excited about color challenges after visiting Paper Trey Ink's Make it Monday post!
If you haven't seen it, please go!  It was fabulous!

Any ways.... my card was made with the Beautiful Blooms ll - 1 & 2 dies (Paper Trey Ink). I placed red and polka dot Smash tape across the card panel behind the flowers.  I tied some Swimming Pool Doodletwine across the tape. Sprinkled some red & black rhinestones! And the sentiment is Hero Arts.

This was fun! I hope you like!
And visit these 2 sites!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Mackie!! This card looks like it could be gracing the pages of Paper Crafts magazine, my friend. It's outstanding in the way you used the sketch and the colors.
