Retro Sketch #105

Happy Monday!! Today I am sharing a card I created for the Retro Sketch blog challenge. I was to use the sketch below to create my card.

I actually was going to combine this with a watercolor challenge but I got stuck. I kind of put myself in a corner with the patterned paper I used. I dug it out, cut it and adhered it to my white card before I thought about how it would look with a water colored element. Since the paper looks like it is water colored, I could not make it work. The card below is what it evolved to.

I did not use a button like on the sketch. After I gave up on the water coloring, this card came together rather easily. The main element is a die cut from My Mind's Eye. 

Here is a close up of the bottom. I promise that the banner is not crooked. Not sure why it looks like that in both these photos!!

The die cut was adhered to the card using adhesive foam to give it a little dimension. For all the trouble I had coming up with what I wanted to create, I am happy with how this came out.

Thank you for stopping by!! Have a great day!!
