Retro Sketch #22

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

I'm not quite back on schedule as I have been quite glued to the TV watching the Olympics! I've never really paid a huge amount of attention to the Olympics in the past, maybe watching only a few things now & then. This year I seem to be hooked, it could be partially due to it being hosted on home soil, but I am genuinely more interested than before. It's been a FAB day so far for Team GB with the women's rowing securing the 1st GOLD for the team. 

Anyway, I'll get to the point of todays post & share my card ...

I stepped out of my comfort zone for this card & used Orange! It's been popping up here & there in my creations & I love colouring this Gerbera flower in the colour! I paired it with a FAVE of mine Hawaiian Shores, a pleasing crisp cheery combination.

I used the current Retro Sketch HERE & seen below for my card LO ...

Below is a little close up of the card ...

I'm also entering this card into the current Addicted to Stamps challenge HERE to use your markers! 

Short & sweet today as I can hear the mens cycling time trials have started & we have a strong contender in this event Bradley Wiggins! 

Have a fun filled day! Thanks for stopping by today.
