Retro Sketches Color Throwdown!

I am so loving the June SOTM - the birds, the punny sayings, it's just so adorable!!

I made this card or the team swap at our meeting tonight. I used the color combo from Color Throwdown #92. They always have such interesting inspiration photos!

I also used the sketch from one of my favorite sketch blogs, Retro Sketches. I wanted to CASE the Happy Bee-Day card at the top of the post like immediately-yesterday-OMG-it's-too-cute! You have to buzz over and have a peek!

I used my beloved Dotty for You papers (only available this month!) matted onto Grey Wool CS. The flower I cut on my Cricut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  I rolled the petals all around to make it more 3-D after I stamped the flower image and spritzed them with my Spray pen and Smoothie reinker. I stamped the flower image again on White Daisy CS and trimmed out the center circle, which I backed with lots of tiny white cricut cut hearts and popped up on the flower center. I hand cut leaves from Grey Wool CS and scored the centers to make the leaf vein.

I'm linking this to the H2H Polka Dots and Stripes Challenge too!

Thanks for fluttering by!
