Tuesday Challenge card: Blingy Retro

hmmm... Bling and retro.. Not normally two words uttered in the same sentence, but I uttered. yes I did...

I combined two challenges in one with this cards. I got the color combo from Dawn's challenge, and I rooted through my new scrap pile (re: yesterday's post) and these two colors just jumped out at me. They just FELT retro to me, so I added the bird rubons (Hambly) they are TRES kitchy! Then, for the Jacksonbelle Challenge I added BLING in the form of Zva pearls on the clouds (and some detail with a glitter pen that you can't see.. hahah). Overall, I am extremely pleased with this card.. This will one of those cards I will keep for a while just to have some eye candy around. Lol..

Visit the rest of the team's BLING challenge,

Supplies: Paper: October Afternoon, PTI, unknown; Amuse stamp; Ranger espresso ink; PTI ribbon, Zva pearls, Hambly rubon.
