Retro Thursday

Today's sample is using the supplies from the "I am... Creative" extra class at Stampin' Convention.  During the class we were supposed to make a banner using the supplies, but I prefer to make them into cards (more useful to me).  I am hoping you can tell that I used Tangerine Tango as my card base.  Nothing like Tangerine and Starfruit as some "retro" colors.  The DSP is from the Howlstooth and Scaringsbone package, it works wonderfully for this card!

This card has a lot of elements that I wouldn't normally put together: chevron, polka dots, butterflies and doilies (which are stamped on the top and bottom butterfuly).  Pulled all together it looks really awesome!  I didn't add a sentiment because I wanted the focal point to be on the patterns and butterflies!

Lacey and Lovely Stamp Set
Tangerine Tango, Summer Starfruit, Basic Gray and Whisper White Card Stock
Tangerine Tango and Summer Starfruit ink
Chevron Embossing folder
Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP
