Retro CASual Addiction

Three challenges, two cards, one busy lady.

Card #1 is for CASual Fridays and Addicted to CAS.

Most bloggers did a traditional red, white and blue for Memorial Day card.  I knew I'd never have a reason to send a card like that so chose a different path.  I found this cute paper in my Soho Gardens 6 x 6 pack and knew it would make a great card.  The banner is from SSS and the stamp from PTI, done in Hero Arts pale tomato.

Card #2 is for Retro Sketches.

It took me a while to decide on a paper for this card but in flipping through my 6 x 6 packs I ran across this one and loved it.  The black background is embossed with Swiss Dots to give it the look of some of the images on the paper even though not much of it shows. It has a white core so the dots show up more than they would on a plain black. The little triangles are from my new Tiny Triangles stamps from PTI.  I liked the look of the little lines in it but now looking at it, I wish I had outlined it with a black shadow.  Both the white layer and the triangles are popped up on foam tape.  The sentiment is a new one from PTI and stamped in Hero Arts tide pool.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
