WOYWW #194 And Retro Sketches Challenge #51

Busy, busy, busy... and tired! That's what i've been for the last week or so hence no posting from me!
So, to get back into the swing of things here's what's on my workdesk on Wednesday 20th of February, for WOYWW #194 over at Stamping Ground -

I've got my wee box of 6x6" paper pads out looking for some inspiration - I sometimes find that a paper i've not used for a while will spark some imagination in me and I can create something fab with it! My Retro Sketch challenge card for this week has dried over night so is sitting waiting to be entered and i've got a stamped image of 'My Mother's Dress' stamp waiting to be used. My new Pro-marker pack and stack of new Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads are there if you look hard enough! And, i discovered that my Cricut and Cuttlebug will both sit happily together on top of the drawers.

So.... on to the Challenge card, Retro Sketch Challenge #51.

Ok, so I basically used the sketch to the letter! After seeing the sketch, I found this large paper flower and the little ones looking lost in a box so found some papers to match - the Craftwork Cards Glitter Candy Cane paper pad. Its a quick and simple card, some matting and layering with the 3d blooms glued in place and a stamped 'congratulations' on the bottom. My kind of style - quick and easy!
