Bright Retro Fresh card with Starburst Sayings

It’s funny. I tell myself that I’m going to focus on getting caught up on some other tasks I’m behind on (like making sure the last few people who participated in my Online Stamp Club at the end of the month have their project passwords & make and take packets in the mail!)  So, I’m going to wait to edit photos and post on my blog for a few days.  But then after I haven’t posted for 2 days, suddenly I feel like its been AGES and I have the itch to get something to share. Smile 

So, here I am, pulling out a card to share that I received from my fabulous friend Annie Lee, because YOU need something bright and cheery to send off your Friday! 

Now, I normally shy away from orange as a main color… I don’t wear it, I rarely buy it…. but times like these remind me that it isn’t as bad as I think!  Smile  In fact, I think it actually makes the card.  It helps the patterns in the Retro Fresh designer paper and the sentiment stand out without needing them to be super bright themselves.

And she reminded me about those Vintage buttons that have been sitting on my desk for the last 9 months and never been touched… remember those?  I swear, I never would have though to grab a “frilly”, vintage button to go with a modern retro card – but it works!

And that, my friends, is why doing card swaps and sharing ideas is so great.  It helps you see the supplies you have in a whole new light and give you great ideas to try. 

Want to swap and share ideas online with me and other crafters?

I’ve been thinking of putting together a group for sharing ideas and possibly swapping (most likely a group on Facebook).  You wouldn’t have to be a Stampin’ Up demonstrator to participate as I’d love as many people to share ideas as possible.  If you are interested in joining a group like this, leave me a comment, post on my facebook page,000 or shoot me a mail.  If I have enough interest, I’ll get it going and make sure you are invited!
