Retro Sketch #165 With Lawn Fawn

Hey everyone!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend. It is nice and sunny, but a bit humid today. I am kind of laying low and doing lots of laundry.

This week went by fast and I am hoping that next week is even faster. I so want school to be over already. EVERYONE has checked out and it is so hard to motivate with the weather being so nice.

Today I am sharing a card I created using a sketch from Retro Sketch Challenge Blog. I always love their sketches!!

I had fun using my new Lawn Fawn stamps and dies. "Baked with Love" was the set that I was coloring in this post and I decided to use a few images to create the birthday card below.


First I cut a piece of orange Lawn Fawn patterned paper for the background. I love the Pint Sized Patterned Beachside paper pad. It has such fun patterns and colors that are perfect for card making!!


I then used a Lawn Fawn "Stitched Scallop Border" to die cut a piece of patterned paper from Basic Grey's "Vivienne" collection.

I used Pretty Pink Posh's "Stitched Film Strip" die to cut out the white frame and then ran it through my Big Shot again to cut a piece of fun foam.


I have had this die for months and have never used it. I thought this would be the perfect accent to go with the sketch.



With all my pieces cut out, it was time to assemble the card. I used Retro Sketch #165 as the basic design for my card.


I used the sketch to layer all my patterned paper pieces and the film strip together. I was going to make a shaker card at first and then decided against it. I did use a piece of acetate between the fun foam and white frame so that the die cut, stamped images had a resting place.



My last step was to cover the cup cake in Pretty Pink Posh sequins.



I think this card came out so cute and had so much fun using Lawn Fawn's Baked with Love stamp and die set. I cannot wait to make some more cards with the other images I colored in!!



I am entering this into the Retro Sketch #165 Challenge, Simon Says "Anything Goes" Wednesday Challenge, "Seize the Birthday "(anything goes), and a Blog Named Hero's "New" Challenge. I sure used a ton of new products on this card from the Lawn Fawn Stamps to my Pretty Pink Posh stitched film strip die.




I thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a great day!!
