RetroSketches #137

IMG_6781


Time for a new sketch at RetroSketches!

This week our sketch is based on a card that I did HERE.

Here is my retake on my card.

I was inspired by Lizzie Jones card HERE. I love that she put the inverse pieces back into the die as inlaid die cuts. I clear embossed the frame and used colour blocking instead of stamping.

Head over to RetroSketches today and give this sketch a try, I can't wait to see what you do!

Oh, thought I had commented yesterday when I saw this card. Well, you know that I raced right to my craft room to make a card to play along, so you know that your card had a big impact on me. Love your color blocking, and I may just try this challenge one more time.
