Retro Birthday

Hope you had a great day!  I had a lovely walk this morning in the wonderful fresh air!  It is hard to believe that last week when I walked it was 36 with the humidex and this morning there was a wind chill of 12!!!  Oh how I love our crazy Canadian weather!

Today's card was created for this week's Retro Sketches challenge!  I loved the sketch this week and had a few minutes the other day to create this card!  I was a little hung up on the colours but with help from my great friend Rita Wright and her colour coach (I don't have an updated one) I was able to ascertain that Pool Party and Bermuda Bay are friends!

I hadn't used my Daisy die in a while and I absolutely love it!  I used some Quatrefancy DSP to create the yellow smaller daisy!

Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Pool Party
DSP: Quatrefancy Specialty, Brights DSP Paper Stack
Stamps: Four You
Ink: Bermuda Bay
Other: Daisy #2 Die (retired), Corner Rounder

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous day!
