Retro Sketches #14

Good morning!

A quick share today. I loved the Retro Sketch this week. Perfect CAS sketch.
So I played the challenge.

Here is my take on the sketch.

Cardstock: Stampers Select White from PTI
Stamp Set:  Get your Thong On from There She goes and Sending You Sunshine from The Craft's Meows
Inks: Archival Jet Black Ink
Accessories: Cutterbee scissors and copic markers

Although itis winter for me and I felt kind of funny making summer card, I still like the colours. Well, I did enter the PC Gallery Idol but did not get through the top 20. A bit disappointed but I knew about the competition was stiff. So no bad feelings:) But I decided to play along anyway. There is a Flickr group called Play along Gallery Idol by Keren, where you can link your projects and play along :) Isn't that cool? I am goinng to enter this card into the Play Along Gallery Idol too.

A month ago, my SU snips fell to the floor and the tips got bent. I straightened it but I also ruined the scissors by sharpening using knife sharpner. So I was in search of a new scissors. I had a few people recommend Tim Holtz and Cutterbeee. They both were non stick. I ended up choosing Cutterbee which arrived last week. You can see from this card, I had a good time fuzzy cutting all those flip flops :) Love my new Cutterbee non stick scissors:) 

Anyway, it a holiday for me today(Monday). It is foundation day for Western Australia. But I do have a few chores to do. Got to go now and get them all done so I have rest of the week stress free :)

See you soon!

I love the bright colors. Really cute card. It would have been great to see your card in the top 20, Gayatri. Yes, tough competition. Thanks for the link to the Play Along so I can see all the other great cards stampers will be making.

Super fun way to use the sketch Gayatri, the rainbow colours are probably just what you need to cheer up a winters day...... Not that it's exactly flip flop weather here either!!!
