Spring Song

These are my entries for the retro sketches challenge.

I began my creation with a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I layered it with a piece of patterned paper I picked up from Michaels.  The image was stamped on Very Vanilla, using my markers in Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue and Old Olive.  This is finished off with a scalloped ribbon border in Crumb Cake, and Pink rhinestones. 

This card has been created on a piece of Whisper White cardstock. A handmade purple embossed paper mat has been attached to the card base. On this, I have added a textured pink dotted scallop ribbon border, along with a gorgeous vintage, shabby style illustration. I have added some spray color to the white part along with 2 pink buttons.

Here is the sketch:
