One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Retro Sketches # 13 this makes card # 4!

I guess I am on a roll...really trying to make up for the lack of "Thank You" here is my fourth card for this sketch:
Everything but the pattern paper is from Papertrey Ink.  The flower, frame and sentiment are all from Pretty Peonies (this is their anniversary set that you can earn reward points to cannot buy it, it must be earned with reward points)...and it now has die cuts to go with it, which makes this stamp set so fabulous!  I also die cut Detail Doilies in Sweet Blush to go behind the frame which was stamped with Ocean Tides ink.  The peony was stamped in melon berry and I highlighted a bit of it using some copics. 

If you would like to play along with this sketch then go to Retro Sketches Blog and check out all the cards and the sketch!  Thanks for taking a look!


  1. Hey another fantastic card Colleen! Now your just making it difficult for me to have a favorite! LOL! I love this one just as much as the yellow one but for different reasons. I really adore the soft colors, layering and texture of the die cuts on this one.

    1. Jackie, thank you so much for your very sweet and kind words!
