Color Q Challenge meets Retro Sketches challenge!

Here is my take on both challenges:
(click on the photo for a closer look!)

So I used the Stampin Up! colors listed above. I couldn't believe I had Summer Sun still hanging out here as it has long been retired.But I never get rid of anything! That's why my scrap room is jam packed with so much!
I used a little Copic R05 on the main flower to give it dimension and laid down a glue dot and stuck some tiny black seed beads in the flower center to give it texture. The SU! set I used was Secret Garden stamps and coordinating dies. The sentiment is from SU! Itty Bitty Banners and matching Bitty Banner dies. The embossing folder and paper doily is also from SU! Finished it off with black and white baker's twine and voila!!

Thanks for looking!
