Day 27: Retro Cool

I realized today that I only made thank you cards for the children that attended E's party. I needed to make some grown up cards for the friends of the family that attended as well. But they needed something a little less cute and a lot more cool... I searched through my mounds of unused paper and came across this retro cool style:

I was immediately inspired by the shapes and colors. I used Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip to come up with this groovy card:

The images are from SU's Wow Flowers and Much appreciated sets. I thought the circle-starburst thing looked kinda retro and fit in with the design. I "stamped off" the ink so it would be a little more subtle.

The sentiment is stamped on Very Vanilla and matted with Chocolate Chip. I used a snippet of Tangerine Tango ribbon and a turquoise button to add some flair.

I don't think I would have typically used this color combo, but I really love how it all came together!

Thanks for stopping by today!
