A Card for Retro Sketches II

I'm back with my second card for Retro Sketches challenge...

...and I've gone all girly this time.

I've used lots of different textures for the background, mainly in shades of white.  Then I have embellished with pastel flowers (brads and paper), an epoxy bird, a vellum butterfly and a swarovski crystal drop.

The butterfly gives dimension as it's wings are free and not stuck down.  The swarovski crystal drop gives movement as it dangles.  It looks great when it catches the light.

I like that is very feminine and girly with out being in your face pink.  In fact if you took away the pink brads it is the colour palette for a baby boy card.

Thanks for stopping by, I'd love to hear your comments...


  1. I really like both of your cards for this challenge. How fun to do a boy and girl. We've got those Euro games on in my house, too, so I'd say I'm partial to the one with the ball.

  2. Soft and lovely. Thank you for playing along again at RetroSketches ; )

  3. Both your cards are lovely, excellent job with the sketch.

  4. Just perfect for the sketch! Thanks for playing along with us at RetroSketches!
