RetroSketch #20


I just tried my hand at this awesome sketch!
It is this week's Retro Sketch Challenge

I fell in love with the sketch and the original card it was based on! 




Once again I used the heat embossed vellum technique for the bottom panel.
I stamped the vellum with the Life of the Party Dots (Hero Arts) in Versamark, then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
The gorgeous white die cut flower is a die called Fresh Daisies (Simon Says).
I made the rolled roses with the Rolled Rose and Rolled flower dies (MFT).
All of the papers are from Lively-Authentique 6x6 paper pad.
The sentiment is Friendly Phrase (Verve) and the hexagon is from Studio Calico.

Thanks for stopping by!
Mackie
