Retro Sketches #232

I spent a little time in the craft room last evening, and it felt fabulous. Some days by the time I have finished work, made dinner, lunches for the next day and on and on I feel drained.

My poor little craft supplies get sadly neglected and well nothing get created. It was one of those just get in there moments, a book in my ears and my sister on Google Hangouts - a little slice of heaven right there :).

I am playing along with the current Retro Sketches challenge.

Layers.. I love me some layers. I have this fun 6x6 Echo Park paper pad on my craft table right now that is full of fabulous fall prints.

I pulled out one of the die cuts I received with my new little gold 'bug' , I had to trim down some of the loops as was too big for the square card. I added a thin brown matt to each layer, and heat embossed the sentiment. I finished with some twine and pale blue dots.

Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper - Echo Park, Just Rite - Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves, Anna Griffen - die cut, SSS stitched rectangles, twine, dots.

Thanks for visiting,
