Loved this week's Retro Sketch which is based on a fabulous card by Laurie. I'm also playign along with CAS-ual Fridays which had a black and white plus another colour theme this week (hopefully the challenge police will let the green leaves slip by and not count as an additional colour).
There are a ton of options for the squares and my cast off box made my decision for me as I am desperately trying to decrease it instead of increase it LOL!
The rolled roses from my case off box were the springboard for my card and lead to my selection of this classic colour combo. A punched border softened the lines up a bit and a touch of silver twine wrapped things up nicely.
Our fabulous weather continues and I don't want it to end!! The leaves are just starting to turn colour and soon our street, which is full of maple trees, will be covered in the fabulous colours of Fall! A sight that always takes my breath away.
Thanks for visiting today. Always enjoy the company :)
