A Retro Monday

My card today was definitely a challenge.  It combines a
sketch challenge from Retro Sketches and a color challenge
from Merry Monday

Here is the sketch...

...and here are the colors...

...should be easy right? This was a little out of my 
comfort zone which is the main thing that I love about
these challenges. Besides being fun they have helped me
grow as a paper crafter. 
If you haven't tried one yet, you should think about it.

card stock: whisper white, tempting turquoise,
    raspberry ripple, gumball green, vellum
stamp sets: linear baubles (stamp-it australia)
 the greeting is Stampin' Up - can't remember the name
ink: gumball green, raspberry ripple, marina mist, 
   basic black, versamark
embellishments: white embossing powder, 
    designer vintage buttons, 5/8" organza ribbon

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!!
