Retro Sketches #5

Morning everybody,
I am free today. My client just cancelled her therapy session. Since I did all my cooking in the morning before the children left to school, I have all day to craft except I need to vaccum the house. My doggie Charlie has started his biting phase again and been chewing up his blanket and fabric fibre is all over the house 🙁 Before I start vaccuming, I made this card for Retro Sketches #5
Birthday card
Cardstock: Stampers Select White from PTI, Melon Mambo and Bashful Blue from SU
Stamps: YOF mini, Birthday Basics and Retro Background stamps from PTI, Hip to be Square and Geo Graphic from Paper Smooches
Inks: Hero Arts Pool ink, Colour Box Frost White, Archival Jet Back Ink
Accessories: White embossing powder, heat gun and scissors
There is some fuzzy cutting of flowers and leaves but other than that lots of stamping. I love the fresh look of the card. Hope you do too.
Here is the sketch for you.
If you like to play along the sketch challenge then here is the link to the challenge blog :)

Edited: I am also entering this card for Lily Pad Cards Flower Challenge .

Have fun crafting 🙂
