Retro Sketches #1

I love playing along with ColourQ, so when I saw that some of the DT girls were starting a new site called Retro Sketches, I had to give it a shot! So here's my card for their first challenge:

Here's the sketch:

The green paper is SU Old Olive and the blue is PTI Aqua Mist. On the Aqua Mist I stamped PTI's BB Retro. The twine is from The Twinery.

The little monster, I know you've seen before on my blog! Hehehe, he is from Paper Smooches' Falling for You. The sentiment is actually one that I got a really long time ago in the dollar bin at Michaels or Joanns.

The patterned paper that I stamped the monster on is from an old SU DSP pack.

This is pretty clean and simple for me, but I must admit, I love it! Want to try this sketch out yourself? Head on over to the Retro Sketches blog here.
