The Craft's Meow

I revisited today the two fantastic sets designed by Karen Baker, Retro Foundations and Typically Teen.
(Typically Teen is your May's gift with every $50 purchase from the TCM Store!)



The white embossed sentiment and the small one stamped in brown ink, the hanging "disco lights" and the small yellow stars strip, are all from Retro Foundations. The checked background and the splatters come from Typically Teen. I stamped them all in a variety of Memento inks (apart from the checks, which were stamped with Old Paper Distress Ink)



I based my card on this sketch from Retro Sketches:



I've got one more card to share, this time with Nina's Sew Happy set.


I stamped the spools on a piece of canvas, with Iced Spruce Distress Ink and frayed the edges. The dress form was stamped on blue cardstock with black Versafine, and the sentiment with Versa Magic Turquoise Gem.



I cut the decorative border with Classic Scallop and Classic Decorative Inserts Three Edgeabilities®.
The patterned paper comes from Echo Park This & That, and I added some washi tape as well.

This time I used the Ribbon Carousel sketch below, as well as the colours from CR84FN54:



Now it's time to make your way to Jackie's blog! Enjoy your time, and good luck in the drawing!!
