Retrosketches #

 It has been crazy in my neck of the woods, and I haven't kept up with my blog or even commenting on ones I usually visit daily. A lot of my crafting time has been making my niece's wedding invitations. I am just about halfway there. I still have the response cards/envelopes to do after that. My goal is to have them done by the middle of June. Seems like the only cards getting made are those I need to give immediately. 
I just put this card in the mail to my sister who is having surgery on her knee this coming Monday. I used the sketch from Retrosketches #63. I am also submitting it at the last moment too!

     I stamped off the text stamp using Smokey Shadow. I wish I were better at that technique as I don't always have an even impression. The rose was stamped with Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold and Melon Berry. I used the Linen IP on the Hawaiian Shore card stock.

 Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Glad you are at the 1/2 way point on the invites. Big job. Pretty card Carol. I have to use a foam mouse pad when I'm doing that technique. Hope your sister's surgery goes well.

This is a pretty card. I love the rose in those colors. Good luck with those invitations. That sounds like an incredible amount of work, but just as much love is going into those invitations, I'm sure.
