Retro. . .

. . . Me?  From the web: The term retro refers to clothing, style, and design which is outdated. Generally to be considered retro, something must be between 20 and 25 years old. Hey!  I qualify - two or three times!  Retro Sketches, however, are fresh, new, and fun every week. 

Here is the sketch from the wonderful, amazing Laurie Willison.. who rocks my card-making world with every card =]  I've attempted to incorporate a little technique from one of the Watercolor for Card-makers Class in which you white emboss, then color.  I could not have been more simple in my interpretation =[  But the fussy cutting!  Come on!
It's a very stormy day here in Spring Lake, Michigan.  I apologize if the photo is a bit dreary -
Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink for coloring; the little lanterns from American Crafts Terrace Collection; "little moments..." sentiment from American Crafts Dear Lizzy stamp set. 
My Mind's Eye In Bloom 6x6 paper.  Coats silver thread - I never tire of it =]
