RetroSketches #181



Happy Saturday!
When I woke up this morning fall in definitely in the air, I can't believe that two days ago I had the air conditioning on! It was sunny and beautiful today  I spent a bit of time sitting our back this afternoon but I was glad that I had a long sleeved shirt on.

It's time for a new sketch at RetroSketches!


I finally used my Reverse Confetti Shine Bright stamps and Sun n' Clouds Confetti Cuts o create my card today.  I remember seeing Jen del Muro colour this sentiment in ombre with Copics and I had to try it. I added a Wink of Stella over the letters. Looked fabulous in the sunlight but of course overcast when I went to take the photo.


I am also submitting this to Darnell's NBUS challenge.





I hope you play along with us again this week!

Trying to play catch up on commenting, Tracey, and I'm really glad I stopped in for a visit. This is just deliciously CAS. LOVE all the white space, and the sweet sun. Your ombre colored letters are just the ticket for this sweet card too. How's the new house? You'll have to let us know. Bev
