A Little More Retro

Created for today's color challenge on SCS - Black, Soft Sky & Kraft. I don't have much soft sky left.... but I found this scalloped circle that I received as a door prize at a shoebox swap. Since the scallop was flat I need to make a card front, so I cut a smaller circle with my Cutterbee circle scissors, then scored a line at 1/2" with my scor-pal. The top "flap" was adhered to the card base, so now I have a nice, round circle that opens to show the inside.


The dress is from the new Gina K set called "Retro Boutique", which will be released on Friday, June 20. I paper pieced the dress with paper from Basic Grey Periphery.


I added irridescent ice to the sentiment edges and the edges of the scalloped edges. I LOVE glitter!!

What a darling card! The round shape makes me think of an old 45 record and the retro feel adds to that.
