I dig you, baby!

Just stopping in quickly today with a little card I made for the ColourQ and RetroSketches challenges. Kind of fitting that the colours from the challenge are so retro :)

I enjoy the 70s. As much as someone born in the 80s can, at least! Great music, great colours, great art... So I had a bit of fun with this card.

I dig you

 The sentiment on this card is actually from the "I Dig You" set, which is heavy machinery. But I thought it rather appropriate for this groovy card. I took a cue from the inspirational photo and hung some circles (the circle is from the new "Bright Blossoms" set which is available in the upcoming catalogue, AND for the month of April!!). The mushrooms are from "Funky Four" - I cut them apart when I first got them, assuming I would get more use out of them as individual mushrooms.

The sketch came courtesy of RetroSketches:

and the colours are from ColourQ this week:

I'm getting ready for a private stamping party tonight - it's bound to be a fun evening! :)

Hope you all have a splendid day!
