Retro Sketches Challenge # 74

Hi there

Firstly I have to say how excited I am to have become a Perfect Princess on the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge Blog!  You can see my entry for the challenge here! I am now proudly displaying my winners badge and I have to say Woo Hoooooo!

So onto today and an entry to the Retro Sketches Challenge Blog. This is for Sketch # 74 and you can see this below.


Here is my interpretation!


I had great fun making this and loved using the glitter paper. There is nothing like a splash of glittery goodness to make me smile! The clouds are much more sparkly and happy than they appear in the photo. The thinking behind the silver was every cloud has a silver lining!

Supplies Used: Cardtsock – Bazzill Marshmallow, SU YoYo Yellow, Summer Sun. Patterned Paper – October Afternoon Farmhouse 8×8 paper pad, Pebbles Lakeside and Seen and Noted 6×6 paper pads.Glitter paper – SU Silver. Stamps – Lawn Fawn Blue Skies, PTI Heart to Heart #6.
