Retro Little Things


I was supposed to be finishing up some special order cards yesterday but I got distracted by a couple of challenges and ended up making this card.  I used the photo from Inspired By All the Little Things and the design from RetroSketches.  Lesley Croghan has given us lots of gorgeous pictures for the Inspired By challenge so I was glad to finally get organized enough to play along.  I used my Brushos to colour the butterflies and finally dug into this gorgeous ombre chevron paper from Lil' Inker Designs.  Okay, back to the special orders.
Have a great day!

I thought the idea was to use the challenges to make the special order cards? Oh well, too bad, You ended up with an awesome card regardless! Like the chevron bg with the butterflies.
