Retro Inspiration

This is for today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS, Dinnerware, and for the Dirty Lost and Found Sketch Challenge. I LOVE the dishes for the inspiration challenge. They are so COOL! I don't know if those of you who are not Fan Club Members on SCS can view the Dirty Lost and Found Challenge link, but basically they've added even more monthly challenges that go along with the Dirty Dozen gallery. . .kind of like what they did to celebrate the Dirty Dozen this summer. I can never get enough challenges! :)

For this card, I used the True Friend set from the Holiday Mini Catalog as well as Absolutely Fabulous, which has been inked for the first time! YIKES! I loved the colors for the inspiration. This started off my day wonderfully because these colors make me HAPPY! Hope they make you happy as well! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- True Friend, Absolutely Fabulous; Ink- Palette in Noir; Paper- Taken With Teal, Whisper White, DCWV Black and green; Accessories- small circle punch, jumbo and mega circle punches, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" circle punches, Making Memories brads, rhinestone brads from Target $1 bin, paper piercer, polka dot organdy ribbon, small and large oval punches.

Charmaine, I love what you did with this challenge. The card is gorgeous!
I slept late, started on my card, but then went to the beach, the outback and then watched a movie with my man. I have to cherish those moments.
I hope I get to finish the card tomorrow.
