Retro Sketches #10

I had to order this adorable Alfresco stamp set from Paper Smooches that just came out. My sister's favorite food is hamburgers and we had them often growing up, so this set makes me smile. Here is the first card I created using it:

I used this week's Retro Sketches sketch:

The patterned papers are from DCWV. I colored the images with Copics. All images and the sentiment are from the same PS set.

You have to have gingham with burgers! The ribbon is from SU. The cardstock is from PTI.

The grey pearls are from Q & Co.

I made this card tonight with Suzanne. It has been WAY too long since one of our Wednesday night get-togethers and we had lots to chat about. I wasn't as productive as usual, but the visit was much needed. I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful friend and crafty buddy who lives right down the road from me!


  1. I'm screaming with jealousy--that you have a crafty friend so close by. This card is just darling, and how sweet that it reminds you of your sister. I could see this as an invitation to a bbq--just give me a time and I'll be there.

  2. this makes me want to fire up the barbeque! What a super fun summer the colours :)

  3. Jessica I this stamp is so sweet BECAUSE it reminds you of your sister. I had to click on it , you did an amazing job coloring this one in. Great take on the Retro Sketches C. The red gingham bow is as about as perfect as you can get for this card. If you are ever in CA you and or your sister will have to go to IN & OUT its the best hamburger and fry place around. 12years ago my sister moved to Seattle and Its the first place they go to when they get off the plane. Adorable Card.

  4. Oh my...this card is just too stinking cute! Love all of the fabulous detail too, just adorable.

  5. Love this cute set, especially for summer cards! Your coloring is incredible, and that gingham bow is the perfect addition. Super sweet!

  6. So fun!! :)
    This is perfect with Summer coming...
    just makes me want to get in the backyard and grill...
    but I'm not allowed!!
    Long story!!
    But love the colors...
    you're coloring is spectacular...
    and that gingham ribbon is icing on the cake perfect! :)
    And I'm so jealous you live right down the road from Suzanne...
    I would love to get together with y'all every week! :)

  7. FUN card and the colors are so summer!!! So glad you played RetroSketches this week!
