Retro My Deer

This card is the reason 
why my dh has no ironed shirts to wear for work.

I had to google RETRO for this week's Merry Monday Challenge,
and I may have got sidetracked by some retro clothing sites :-)

Anyyhoo - what I took away from the images I saw, was that
turquoise, red, gold and brown seem to predominate.
So that's what I chose as my colour combo.

I tried to keep everything simple so that the colours would
speak for themselves.
The hardest thing was stamping my sentiment on that textured card.
I had to go back over it with a fineliner.

  • MFT deer friends, stamps and dies, coloured with Copics.
  • Avery Elle postage stamp die
  • Bow - Wplus9 heartfelt holidays, stamped in Hero Arts butterbar ink
  • Spellbinders nested ovals
  • Sentiment - Crafty Impressions, christmas baubles sentiments
