Retro Sketches #25

I haven't been able to post lately because my desktop has been getting the blue screen of death and that's where my photos are stored and my PSE is loaded. I've been making do a little bit by directly uploading from my phone to Flickr but it's not the best. Today I'm using the laptop and the mediocre editing software that's on it because I wanted to play along with this week's Retro Sketches #25.

I've had a few friends lately have surgery or having some physical setbacks so I thought a "get well soon" card was in order.

I used some paper from MME and the stamp set is Everyday Classics from Papertrey Ink. It was an anniversary set from several years ago. A little bit of lace ribbon (American Crafts) and Ocean Tides ribbon (Papertrey Ink) finishes it off. It's all set on a Sweet Blush card base.

If you look closely you'll see a couple scored lines at the top of the white cardstock. It was just too much white space but I didn't want to stamp anything else in that space so I scalloped the edge and then added those two scored lines. It gave it some interest without taking away from the main image.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sweet card Jennifer. Love the score lines. I use those all the time for visual interest. Hope your desktop recovers. Mine did that for a while until I added memory and gave it a good dusting out.
