Retro Sketches & The Challenge

I'm playing today in the Retro Sketches #198.  I love it when I see a sketch and instantly an idea comes to me.

I used my craft metal, along with a gold embossed sentiment from STAMPlorations Big Greetings.

 

I went on to be completely captivated by the inspiration photo over at The Challenge #57.

I love the added texture :).


Another fun day in blogland -- Thanks Challenges!


Thanks for stopping by~
