Retro Flowers

Happy World Card Making Day! My day started off very well with an email from Paper Crafts Magazine, one of my submissions was accepted for Card Creations magazine (March 2013), this card cannot be published until the magazine comes out. Yay! I was so excited as this is my first paid publication call! To share the excitement, I had to make a card for WCMD! This card is based on the colours of CR84FN64 (Lt blue, yellow, green), the Retro sketch and the photo inspiration from Runway Inspired's Richard Chai Love Spring photo. I've been wanting to try stamping with the back of the cling stamps, so I pulled out the Sweet Threads stamp set and starting stamping away. Note to self - this technique does not work well if the images are not symmetrical! Anyway, I decided to go ahead with it anyway, I'm pleased with the results. What do you think? Thanks for dropping by!

    Anyway, I love your take on these challenges and the little crochet flower looks cute.
