RS #71 ~ July Headliner!

I was quite pleasantly surprised when I received an email from Arielle Gordon who runs the Retro Sketches challenge. She asked if I would like to be her headliner guest designer for the month of July!!! Nooooo hesitation on my part, I said YES and got my little crafty self right to work!!! The sketch this week is based on a card by fabulous DT member Laurie. This is my take on it.


I decided to make a small 4x4 card. I've had this MME paper for quite some time and thought this would be the perfect time to put it to good use. First off I stamped this elegant flourish by Inkadinkado then I layered on my dp's. I am in love with the Impression Obsession sentiment, the font is SO pretty. And this is exactly what I feel right now, happiness for this opportunity at Retro Sketches. Thanks Arielle!!!

I hope you can play along this week. 
Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy your weekend! ~Lisa
