Retrosketches #19...

   Happy Wednesday.  Whoever thought that a 90 degree day would be welcomed as a "cool" front? I am eagerly awaiting those mid 80's so I can open my windows again and give the AC a bit of relief.
  Retrosketches has become one of my favorite sites. It seems like every week they come up with the neatest sketch. Here is the sketch for this week's challenge.

#19...

 
Here's my take.  I actually used the colors and stamp set premiered from SAF '11 Challenge #1. I haven't used the Iconic Image set too much.

 
Seems like I have been making a bunch of Thank you cards lately. I guess I have a lot to be thankful for. Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:
CS: Priemier Select White, Harvest Gold, Spring Rain
Ink: Memento: Summer Sky, Cantaloupe, London Fog; PTI: ripe Avacodo
Stamps: Iconic Images, Flower Fusion
Die: Spiral Notebook
Other: PTI: gingham ribbon, button; twine

What a pretty card. Love those colors. I also don't remember to use this set often enough. Hope you are enjoying retirement.

Beautiful! I like the stamped background and how you did the button with the ribbon. And the flowers/pitcher are lovely together!!
