Retro Sketch - Literally!

Valentine's photo RSPicA.jpg

Okay...I confess...I needed a post for today and a Valentine's Day card for hubby, so I literally used this week's Retro Sketch for my card - literally.  Very lazy of me, I know...but I'm happy with the way it turned out.  No fru-fru on the card, nice and simple, and no pink to be seen - perfect for hubby :)

All confessions aside, I had a scrap of this fun Bo Bunny paper left so it became the launching pad for the card.  Also got to pull out my new TCP heart die from my SFTYY winnings - love the funky shape!  The sentiment is a $1.50 stamp from Mike's, and I used PTI's linen impression plate for just a touch of something on the white panel even though you can't see it in the picture.

Short and sweet today as lots on the agenda. Wishing you a fabulous day :)



What's In It?
Stamps: Studio G (Michael's) 
Paper: Bo Bunny, Real Red, Cameo Coral, Kraft 
Ink: Black 
Accessories:  Heart Trio CutUp (The Cat's Pajamas), Linen Impression Plate (PTI), Black Half Pearls, Dimensionals
