Retro Stars


Hello again! I hope you've had a relaxing weekend - it has been a lot cooler here and a bit wet, so we took our girls down to watch the Todd River flowing yesterday (for those of you overseas, the Todd River is a dry river through Alice Springs and only flows rarely - it hasn't flowed for 18 months); it was the first time for the little one seeing it flow. Today I've been able to spend a bit of time at my craft desk - yay!

I haven't played along with ColourQ or Stampin' Royalty for a while, but this week's challenges were perfect for a fun 4 year old boys card; great retro colours from ColourQ, and 'Dressing Down (No Embellishments)' from Stampin' Royalty.


I have been wanting to try 'fully embossed panels', so I adhered the stars to the background panel before running the whole panel through the Big Shot. I'm really happy with the effect (this is actually the second card I did today with this!) - no embellishements required!!


Have a great week and thanks for visiting!

Natasha such a pretty card, is that the PTI linen and canvas impression plate? If it is I have never seen such a fantastic impression with it.
