A Retro Kiss?


I have finally made a card for Retro Sketches. They are up to challenge #17, and every time I see a sketch (since #1), I want to join in, but for some reason I ALWAYS miss the deadline! Not this week-end, I made it! Yippee!

This is my card.
And this is the sketch.
I think I used my artistic license a bit with my big flower, but that flower really wanted to be on this card, and I couldn't say no. :-)

Now, I also made this card with two other challenges in mind. The colour scheme came from Color Throwdown #197, where the colour combo this week is totally irresistible.
And I did a bit of kissing for A Blog Named Hero #6.
The stamp sets I used were PTI Rosie Posie (and dies), Postmarks, and Think Big Favorites #16. I stamped the backgrounds in Versamark. Colours are Crumb Cake, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red, and Old Olive with Tuxedo Black for the sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by!

Wow, lovely card. I'm amazed at people who can combine more than one challenge in a card! Something I rarely do! Great combination of stamps too. X

WOWZA! The kissing technique you've done is just perfect! I'd have NEVER thought to combine those two stamps, but they're just perfect together!

Thank you so much for playing along with our challenge!~
