Day 316: Congrats Stamp of Month Card

I've been stewing on this card since I saw the new RetroSketches challenge in my inbox yesterday. I didn't have time to make it up until tonight, but combining the sketch with the ColourQ challenge made this card a breeze! 
First I layered the stripe from La Vie en Rose onto the card base. The second stripe is the backside of the bolder black stripe. Then I added a bit of aqua shimmer trim and used Liquid Glass to secure the last bit of my gold foil Beautiful You overlay card. 
I stamped the smaller rose from the January SOTM in black ink of white paper. I layered strips of the aqua shimmer trim over a 1 1.4 inch strip of the striped paper - can you see the ghosted black stripes through the shimmer trim? Then I layered on the banner sentiments (from Crazy Good) and added some gold sequins for extra sparkle. I love it when a card comes together so quickly!
