Creating Retro Fun
This Retro Sketch was too fun to pass up as I'm really enjoying using tags on cards and it provided the perfect opportunity to use one of my PTI tag dies. I combined it with this week's CR84FN challenge as the colour combo was delicious :)
You may be thinking I may have lost my marbles or gone off my rocker as there is a "skewed" element on the sketch and I'm not squealing like a pig LOL! However, when the skewed panel is a tag, I can somehow deal with it just fine - go figure?!
Used lots of my favorite dies on this card, tossed in some dots for good measure and had fun with all the buttons. A truly fabulous colour combo I will definitely use again.
Yesterday I became quite knowledgeable about window replacement after my son purposely broke our front window when he got mad...thankfully it is double pane and just the first pane broke. Needless to say, he is out half the replacement cost and has learned a very valuable lesson - we hope! The joy of having boys!
