Retro Birthday!

Last week the sketch challenge on Retro Sketches out challenged me! I wish I had managed it, however this week the sketch easier for me to tackle. Here is the sketch:



I had a 70th Birthday card to do for a guy so decided to use my new 'retro designer series paper' from Stampin' Up. I love the retro look of this paper and it is so perfect for a guy and a retro challenge!!

I have mixed and matched a number of stamps to construct the sentiment-the 'alphadot' and 'sentiment sampler' from paper smooches and the license plate set from 'stampology'.

This card is for overseas so needed to be pretty flat so I have just slightly raised the 70 on foam pads...well when you get to 70 you deserve to show off!!


Please note...........it is not a CAS card!! I went against my natural desire to make all things CAS. I had a lot of fun mixing papers, stamps and inks.......but boy, does it take some time!! Still I am pleased with how it comes out and love the retro look!!

Have a fun and happy day x
