Retro Sketches 166 Pinkfresh Studio Happy Day Card

Craft time is a bit harder to come by lately, but that's all right - I'll take what I can get. In the interest of convenience and time, I'm trying out using my Note 4 to take card photos for blogging, rather than the DSLR . . I tell myself the saying that goes, "Done is better than perfect."

I pulled together a quick card for this week's retro sketch:

The diamond stamp from the May Pinkfresh Studio embellishment kit was used to stamp a background on the white cardstock. It was looking a little sparse, so I went in and added little hearts from the February Pinkfresh Studio embellishment kit stamp in between the diamonds. I'm a fan of doing little clusters/layers of embellishments, so that's what I stuck with for the main focal point.

I'm thinking this could be a birthday card - we've had several birthday party invites lately and I find myself actually using the cards I make! Yay!


Paper: Paper Source cover stock in Paper Bag; Staples 8.5 x 11 white cardstock; My Mind's Eye blue patterned paper; Bazzill Basics blue solid cardstock

  1. Pretty, pretty! I love the cluster of embellishments & that you added little hearts in between the diamonds. Glad to hear you're using the card you make.
