Holiday Cookie Swap?-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb

Happy Easter! Hopefully you are all enjoying time spent with family and beautiful weather today. Deb and I are back for another Coffee and Cards collaboration and this month we wanted to create something with a retro vibe. I started by stamping the fabulous retro image and sentiment from Riley & Company onto some Copic friendly white cardstock. I colored her skin and hair using my alcohol markers. I then paper pieced her dress and apron using patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Yuletide 6x6 paper pad and adhered them directly onto the image using. I die cut the panel using a stitched edge rectangle die from Paper Rose. I then layered more of the same patterned papers onto my A2 white card base.   I separated the papers by using a white scalloped border I created with a Fiskar's punch and added a small fish tail banner to the top. I popped the focal panel up off of the card using 3M foam tape and then added some black gems that were left over from a diamond art kit I created over the summer. I love recycling little items like that! To finish off the card I added some white gel pen details to her jewelry and her eyes. 
I got up early this morning and joined a few of my running buddies for a 6 mile run/walk. I rewarded myself afterward with an iced Matcha latte from my local Dunkin Donuts. It definitely hit the spot.
 Be sure to stop by Deb's blog to see how she was inspired by our retro theme. Have a beautiful day, and thank you for stopping by my blog!
