Retro Friend

This is the last card I have to post this morning.  This was inspired by the Fusion Challenge.  I've been wanting to play in that challenge and finally got the chance to do so.  I originally had the plan to use a coffee cup but things took on a nature of their own!  LOL

I started with a black card base and all of the DP is from "Social Club" by Cosmo Cricket.  I've had this paper pack for over a year now.  I got it thinking it would be good for masculine cards, but as you see, I wound up making a feminine card.

I began by cutting out the leaves with a die from Taylored Expressions.  Then I arranged my background paper.  The top background is actually plain and I used a mini starburst stamp and stamped some teal and red starburst randomly.  Next I cut out the flower using several flower dies from Taylored Expression and Lifestyle Crafts.  I inked around the edges of each flower piece to help them stand out against each other and popped each flower layer up with pop dots.   I stamped the sentiment right on the upper DP layer.  I could have put some glossy accents on the inner flower or small, but I decided to keep it simple after using all that DP paper. 

STAMPS: Mini starburst (from stash); Sentiment (Taylored Expressions).
PAPER: Black cardstock.  DP - Social Club (Cosmo Cricket).
INK: Teal Zeal and Lady Bug (Memento).  Jet Black (Staz On).
EXTRAS: Leaf die cut, flower die cuts.

Have a wonderful Hump Day!
