Retro Sketch Challenge Card - Would you like to win it ??

I thought this was such a fun sketch and one that was easy to make with all sorts of different images.
I decided to use the You and Me stamp set which yes I know is retired but it is one of my all time favorites.
This was my version of the sketch and I am thrilled with it - it's very ME !!
I cut a standard card ( 4.25"x 5.5" ) from Colonial White cardstock and distressed the edges using 
I used stamped the 2 swirl patterns using the Versamark Ink pad and then heat set the 
I stamped the Journalling area in Cocoa Exclusive Ink
I used Juniper cardstock for the larger ribbon piece and stamped the floral & swirl images using Diverse Backgrounds in Juniper Exclusive Ink..
I know it is difficult to see but I stamped circles of dots from the Love Life stamp set on the Creme Brulee cardstock using Creme Brulee Exclusive Ink.
I used one of the Milepost shape stars and inked the flat side of it using Ruby Exclusive Ink &  
then made it glossy with Liquid Glass.
I embossed the heart shape from the Love Life stamp set again in Cocoa Embossing Powder 
& colored the swirls using the Creme Brulee Exclusive Markers. 
I used the Ruby Exclusive Marker to color in the tiny dots next to the swirls & then added 
liquid glass over the top.

Hope you love it as much as I do - make sure you leave a comment & one person will be chosen 
from the list & will receive this card from me :O)
