Retrosketches & The Challenge

 I'm needing a ton of birthday cards this month, so this is one more checked off my list. I used the colors in The Challenge #68 - hot pink, green, teal, yellow - and paired it with the layout for the Retrosketches Challenge #210. 

I stamped a couple of washi tape images in Bermuda Bay ink from SU's Tape It stamp set.
The florals are from the Wildflower stamp set by Concord and 9th - stamped in Melon Mambo then fussy cut. Instead of solid coloring, I used a Copic marker (Y06) and stippled the petals.  They were then layered with a matching floral die.  Leaves were punched using the bird punch by SU. The sentiment was stamped twice using my MISTI and I'm loving the bold font from Altenew's Painted Greetings set. It was then die cut using MFT Die-Namics.  Enamel dots were the finishing touch!

While creating this card, I was playing a couple of episodes from the Outlander series (season #1)...SO VERY GOOD!!  I'm not typically a binge show watcher, but this one has me hooked - lol!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
