Retro Fun


I am really on a roll and loving every inked second *smile* with my Green Thumb set. I really think the colors Old Olive, Real Rust, and Chocolate chip give a retro feel so I went with that theme. The flowers are also inked with rust and olive ink. I added some May Arts ribbon and copper brads. The flower chipboard is from Lil Davis designs and was inked with a sponge in Old Olive. I did some paper piercing and rounded the edges. I really like how the upside down flower is framed with the chipboard. This was a fun and quick card.
