DD #41 & RS #52



I found the colours at Dynamic Duos challenging this week.  When I stopped over-thinking it and grabbed a sketch from this week's RetroSketches challenge my card came together quickly in a very CAS way.  This week is the 52nd challenge at RetroSketches!  Wow a whole year and this week's challenge was to pick any sketch from the 1st year to create a project. I am also submitting this to Simon Says Stamps Anything Goes.
