A New Year with Retrosketches

  I decided to start the New Year off right by joining in the Retrosketches' latest challenge using this sketch.

 I used the newly Released Quilled Elegance Stamp set from PTI. I think this is a first for me; using a stamp set before the next release! I fell in love with this set the moment I saw it.

  An up close shot of the piece I fussy cut.

I love the color combination of Simply Chartreuse, Spring Rain and Winter Wisteria. Just wonder if I should add the little stamp image from this set to the purple panel? What do you think?

Just beautify done. The colors are magnificent, perhaps a quiet fave of mine in fact. I love the panelling work...and those scrolly things...divine!

Lovely card Carol. The colours are really so soft and gorgeous together. I don't use blue very often on m y cards, but I really need to try this combo. Thanks for the inspiration. Here's to a Happy New Year and many crafty days ahead!!

What a pretty card, and great take on the sketch. I love that little embellie you hand cut. It reminds me of an artsy butterfly. And, I like that purple panel just as it is.
