It seems like forever since I have had some time alone in my craft room! I have been wanting to play along with the Retro Sketches challenge all week! I finally had a few minutes to complete my card before the deadline! Here is the original sketch design:
I paired the sketch with the color challenge at The 4 Crafty Chicks. I love the yellow and grey combo…but it seems the only time I use it is for a challenge!
My card is on the simple side…so I added a few layers to my bow to make it pop! All of my decorative layers were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.
I often add numerous layers to my card. If your card is a little on the top heavy side, you can even things out by adding a few layers to the inside as well.
