Retro Sketch #59

RetroSketch photo RS59picA.jpg

This week's Retro Sketch was a fun one.  I decided to make a baby card with it and Verve's Shining Star and matching Starry Die set was the perfect fit.

I chose this adorable sentiment from the set and die cut and layered the stars.  The banner looked a little lonesome out there on it's own so I added some twine to give it some vertical grounding (there is an oxymoron LOL).

I really wanted to add a second sentiment in the bottom right corner, and it took a lot not to do so - these CAS cards kill me LOL!  Along that line, if I had been awake and thinking clearly, I would have embossed the white panel with PTI's Linen impression plate for a tiny bit of texture, but alas, that was not the case.  So, very CAS it is.

Thanks for poppy by today.  Hope you're having a great week.

Love it! Thanks for the reminder about this sketch. I must have had it on the brain when I made the card I posted yesterday. I think my card looks like the sketch, only upside down.
