Retro Sketches 7 & Play Date Cafe 127 Colors

A few years ago, I saw a how-to video on how to make these flowers.  I was so excited that I made a dozen.  I used them on cards and pages.  I had this one left over for some reason.  In the future I may make my own video on how to make them, once I figure out how to do it.

I feel fortunate that the flower that I had left over is the exact color I needed for this challenge.  I got my color inspiration from The Play Date Cafe 127

I am very taken by this new challenge site, Retro Sketches 7.  I like that their images look hand drawn and that they are multi-layered.  Helps me get through my stash quicker.

The pompom ribbon and the stamped image are prizes that I won from A La Card Monkey....another wonderful challenge site.  The yellow border was cut with a die from Tim Holtz Alterations.  I stamped it in yellow but a light shadowing.  I feel this week I certainly have made a dent in my stash.  I love it that I am depleting my stash.
