Exciting news!


I was over the moon the other day when I received an email from Arielle about joining the Retro Sketches Challenge blog!  Of course I said yes!!  I am so excited to join these other amazingly talented ladies!

I already saved this sketch to play along with this week, so I thought I would stop in with my card for challenge #3...

I made my seam binding with a green Copic and then wrinkled it up with my fingers.  I love this "diy" of making your own.  All you need is one big spool of white and some markers and your set!  

Here is this weeks sketch...

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stop in Saturday for the next round of Retro Sketches!  I hope you have a chance to play along!  There is still time to link up with this weeks sketch too!

Have a great day!

Oh what a fantastic idea to color your own seam binding!!! I'm going to have to try that. Your card is beautiful—the cluster of flowers are really pretty sitting on the edge of your die cut shape. I'm so excited you've joined our little team! :)

What great news for you. I'm so happy for you. And, it's also great for me, as now I get to play along with you on two challenges. This card is a good example of why you are perfect for the job.
