Retro Sketches 50 & The Paper Players 132

This card is for Retro Sketches 50 and The Paper Players 132.  I havn't had a chance to play in either challenge for quite a while now.  

I loved the fun color combo and sketch, but I need some generic thinking of you cards, so that's the direction I headed.  I started by inking up my Lacy Brocade EF with Primrose Petals ink and ran it through my Big Shot on a piece of Vanilla CS.  I stamped the leaves in River Rock ink, fussy cut them out and sponged them with Summer Starfruit ink.  I tied them up with some old, old ribbon from a ribbon originals pack.  I think it's supposed to be Not Quite Navy, but it works nicely with the Midnight Muse.  Next, I mounted them on some Midnight Muse DP and added an antique brad.  Lastly, I added the sentiment.

Here's a list of supplies.....
Stamps: French Foliage, So Happy For You
Paper: Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse CS & DP, Summer Starfruit, Vanilla
Ink: Primrose Petals, River Rock, Summer Starfruit
Accessories: Antique Brad, Prep School ribbon originals, Lacy Brocade EF

Thanks for taking a peek!
