RetroSketches #151 and colourQ #278

IMG_7440


For this week's RetroSketches #151!
My post is a bit late going up, but my mother always said better late than never.  This week's sketch is based on THIS gorgeous card by our own Erin Taylor.

I decided to use the colours from this week's colourQ for my card along with some new Reverse Confetti Love Blooms stamps and dies.  I hope you find some time to play along with both these challenges this week! The little enamel dots on the flower centres were a little trick I picked up from Lynn Mangan.
