hey, girlfriend...

Hey there!  It's time for this week's installment of Retro Sketches!  I got my SSS kit in the mail this week and had to dive right in!  Here is my card for this week....

IMG_9175

Everything you see here is from the SSS kit.  I stamped the flower on the white card stock and then used some Pebbles chalks for the coloring.  I added in 3 strips of paper for the background element.  I added in a wood heart that came in the kit....LOVE.  And the sentiment is 2 combined, from the set included.  

Here is the sketch....


After I completed my card and uploaded it to our gallery, I realized that I missed the element on the bottom right.  Oops.  Creative license right?  :)

I hope you get to play along this week!  Go check out the DT cards and link up your own!  Thanks for stopping in!

Chalk! I was wondering what you used...that is the perfect shade of gray, I think. I love that cardstock and the texture in it. The images are so sweet, Laurie. Just like you!
