It's retro week again!! This time we're having another play with CTS#134 ... check here to see if you played in July 2015! I won't forget the struggle I had making my DT card that week ... I think I did better this year! You be the judge. lol
Here is that Sketch:
I found just the perfect [also from 2015!] set from Neat n Tangled for my card ... here's how I saw it this time:
I love all the shades of grey in a great big 12x12 pad of neutrals from
Michael's I picked up a few years ago - I doubt I'll ever use it all!
My circles were created using Essential Circles, which not only cuts the circle, but a tiny border circle - which really came in handy to form my 'hoop!' The 'stitches' were stamped in black and clear embossed.
If you did play along in 2015, be sure you show your old with your new - we love seeing them both! Now, let's go see what the team did with CTS393/134, shall we?
Ohhhh those yummy greys....
I mentioned your impeccable taste, well, your design, color choices and execution is equally impeccable.
Love how you used the sketch! Such a classy make, Jo x
Such a brilliant take on the sketch, Michele!
PS Not only did I play the first time around but I won!
Sweet! I have this stamp set, and had forgotten about it - love the way you used it, Michele!
The simple elegance of this is stunning - wow!
How cool is this? LOVE the fun way you used those circles!!!
Clever girl! Love the hoop and those sweet blooms!
LOVE this....you had me at the embroidery hoop! I always used to make cross-stitched pictures and "frame" them in a hoop! Yours is so modern and classic!
Fabulous, Michele! You have honed your creativity to a fine point! Love it.
I'm sure you had me in mind when you chose all those lovely grays, lol!! I love gray almost as much as you do! This is such a graphically pretty card. Love the soft touch of 'stitching', too. It's not too little and not too much. As a baby bear once said, it's just right! Sweet card. Stay safe my friend. xo Bev
So very clever to put an embroidery hoop in those circles! Love your little embroidered piece! It sure brings back memories of my cross stiching days!
The perfect combination of both modern and nostalgia. And of course I love the colors!
Gorgeous take on the sketch, Michele! I love the curved stitches and darling roses...but most of all your clever embroidery hoop is fabulous!!!
I had to take a look back to see what I did and it wasn't bad. I had a good idea for last week's challenge and didn't get time to make it. This week ideas escape me so far but your card is the right combo of ingenuity and design, Michele.
Hooray, a great interpretation of the sketch -- love the embroidery hoop, brings back memories of long ago!
Who knew that monochrome/neutrals could be so pretty, Michele ... well, you, obviously ... what an awesome design eye you have! Hugs, Anita :)
Total elegance and what a terrific design my friend!
Wonderful tones and a fabulous design and clever use of the retro sketch x.
Fabulous take on the retro sketch, Michele! Love the shiny embroidery hoops against the chic layers of monochromatic circles!
Your card is spot on and classy for this sketch!
Well, this is just genius. Absolutely fantastic. That is all.
