Bright Fun Retro Birthday

Here is a birthday card that I made today. I've been holding onto this patterned paper for a while now. But when I was looking through my paper stash today I knew that it would be perfect for a bright fun retro birthday card. So what do you think? Does it say retro? I wasn't sure if I was going to like it at first. But as I was building it I loved how it was coming out. The patterned paper that I used is from Frances Meyer. I started with that paper and then built everything else around it.





I am entering it into the following challenges:



Sweet Stampin: Pimp Your Card (turquoise gemstones)



The Sweet Stop: Sketch



Whimsical Wednesdays The Diedrich Dare: Photo Inspiration



Stampavie & More: Summer

Everybody Art: Summer



Doodle Palace: Retro Themed







Card Recipe:

Embellishments: Nicole Crafts Turquoise Gemstones
Tools: EK Success 1 3/8" Circle Punch, EK Success Mini Daisy Punch

This is the next step on the Daisy's Digi Doodles Store, right?

Your card is really pretty, I love all of the bright colors. I do not know about retro, though.
