Retrosketches#101

Hi everyone!

Today I'm bringing you a card I've made following the current sketch over at the Retrosketches Blog.  The sketch is by Kasia and when I first saw it I thought this was going to be a tough one, but once I got started it was fun all the way! 

Here's my card:


and this is Kasia's sketch:


For my card I have used striped paper by My Mind's Eye and I have dry-embossed the white stripe at the top with an EF from Cuttlebug.  The leaf stamp is from the 'Bloom & Grow' set by Verve and I've used the coordinating die to cut the leaf.  The flowers were cut with the 'Flower Trio and Leaf Trio' die set from the Die-namics range by MFT.  The sentiment stamp is from a local craft shop, Great Impressions, and it is in Afrikaans (my home language) and says 'Thank you very much'.
I've added a doiley and some ribbon and two buttons and a twine bow.  Rounded it all off with a few black rhinestones. 

That's my card for today. 

Thanks for popping in and have a lovely day!!

Regards
Petra
