Retro Sketches 99

Hello!

It's Retro Sketches #99! I just love Retro Sketches. I wish I could find time to join in every week. My card this week was a little experiment in using dies. The sketch had a semi-circle, but because I've done that before, I thought I'd try something new. :-)  It ended up being a little more tricky than I had imagined... anyway, here is my card.
Stamps are Polka Dot Parade #10 (and matching dies). Colours are SU! Bashful Blue, Real Red, Early Espresso. The grass is a distress marker in Peeled Paint (I think).

This is the sketch.
Today was the first day of school for the year. My Grade 6 girl treated it like any other day and sent her Dad off before the bell rang. My Grade 1 girl was super-confident and sent me away before the bell rang. I'm proud of both of them. Apparently, according to all reports, the day was pretty boring, lol! For the big girl the day was saved by a horse riding lesson this afternoon. ;-)

Thanks for visiting!
