Happy World Card Making Day!

I am really excited to finally be able to let you know that I am the Headliner for October at retrosketches!  I have been a fan of the challenge since the beginning and I think it is going to be so much fun to play along.  Here is this weeks inspiration...




Wha...you ask?  This week we are letting you choose any past retroSketch and use it to create your card in honour of World Card Making Day.  Here is a LINK to all the past retroSketches! I went back to 2013 and chose sketch number 82.


 and here is my version of it...
