Monday Moment

Today it's back to cards and I'm playing along with the RETRO challenge at Time Out.

Well I guess I'm of an age where anything from my childhood/teenage years can be considered retro. My card's design and colours were inspired by a dress and coat I wore as a young teenager - cringe!
It wasn't exactly like this one, I seem to remember it was bright orange, but you get my drift....

Here's my card:

I'm hoping my card is not as gross as the outfit that inspired it - I obviously needed a bit of CAS back then for sure!

I used the Uniko stencil to create a background pattern and then stamped and die cut the Passiflora blooms. I finished off with a block sentiment which I hand cut.

Stamps: Uniko Passiflora, Uniko Style, Simply Said Blocks
Inks: SU, so saffron, crushed curry, flirty flamingo, calypso coral, mint macaron, tranquil tide; Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distrss oxide, candied apple
Die: Uniko, Passiflora
Stnecil: Uniko, Quilted

Thanks for visiting today, I hope you enjoyed my little trip down memory lane.

And keep crafting!
