Hey strangers!

Actually, I guess I'm the stranger.  It's been a long time since I posted!
I finally found some time this weekend to make two cards.  It felt SO good to spend some quality time at the craft table.  :)

Anyway...I'm playing along with the Retro Sketches rs#146.  Here's the sketch!
Here's my card!

It certainly is bright, isn't it?  Well, that's the look I was going for.  Bright, festive and fun.  That patterned paper from Stampin' Up! caught my eye as I was going through my Christmas stash, so I pulled all of my colors from that.
The "polaroid" frame was die cut 3 times and glued together to make a nice thick piece.  I set a single layer of green card stock into the frame, then popped up the kraft banner and the stamped panel.
That's about it!
Thanks for taking a look today.  Hopefully, I'll have some extra time for crafting over this holiday break from work.  So you MIGHT see a few more posts coming up.  :)
