Retro Flowers


I think I had an outfit that matched this card back in the 70's!! The flowers are stamped with CTMH "Retro Flowers" set - it's very similar to SU Big Pieces (which I just ordered and should have in a few days... yeah!!).
--
I stamped the flowers on on Pixie Pink, Pink Passion and Old Olive cardstock. Trimmed the flowers then added gel pen acents to all. The each layer of the flowers is set on a dimensional dot for added depth.
--
The stems are from SU Mixed Bouquet set - so are the leaves. I just received the ribbon from Ribbonsandbowsohmy.com - it's from the Chocolate Strawberry collection (http://ribbonandbowsohmy.com/index.php?module=Catalog&action=ViewProduct&prod=184). I was so happy with all the ribbon I bought!
