FUNKY RETRO UPTOWN


This card combines SCS Color Challenge 175 of Almost Amethyst, Wild Wasabi and So Saffron and Lynda Benden's Sketch Challenge Tuesday from 7/08/08.

I was thrilled with this week's color challenge ... I immediately thought of the retired Uptown designer papers. I have alot of it left and barely used any when it was in the last catalog. The dp panel with circles have other circles from another piece of the same dp that have been punched out with various sizes of circle punches and popped up on stampin' dimensionals.

Lynda's sketch really caught my eye, as I'm a sucker for a sketch with several interesting layers ... perfect with Stampin' Up Designer Papers!

RECIPE
Stamps: Think Happy Thoughts
Paper: Uptown DP (retired), Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Wild Wasabi and Versamark
Embellishments: Wild Wasabi Double Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, So Saffron Brad, Dew Drops (non-SU)
Tools:
Various Circle Punches

Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombow Adhesive
