A Little Bit Retro

Today on the Cards In Envy Blog I have a card up and the theme is: A Little Bit RETRO!- create cards featuring a style, fashion or design from the past.
This challenge had me stumped, so I finally Google "retro" and then it was easy.

Here is my retro card using a mix of some older October Afternoon lines:

 
I made this for my hair stylist friend, she is going to love it!
Stop on over to the Cards In Envy blog and see what the rest of the design team came up with.

  1. Your retro card is so fun with the old-time ad and paper choices. I love the beautiful stitching and distressed edges. Your card even inspired me to make a second retro card using some October Afternoon papers from my stash.
