Retro Chic

Good morning... er afternoon!... not so warm today so thought I'd better do a bit of housework first, not my first choice of an enjoyable way to spend a morning but sometimes I have to give in and vacuum up the dog hair! Wouldn't think that a short coated dog could distribute so much hair so far...and I won't even mention the dog slobber...still my lovely girl is worth it!

Anyway my card today is for our new challenge at Fab n Funky, sponsored by The Paper Shelter. Our lovely hostess this week is Wends, it's always worth a visit to her blog, not only does she make beautiful cards she writes such lovely blog posts too! The theme she has chosen is 'Retro Chic' -please visit the challenge blog for more information. 
I used my copics to colour this sweet image, of a young 50's girl, actually titled Retro Chic...
Papers from stash, a 'retro flower' punch ...had this for years but still love it. I stamped a little border of flowers, they match the punch so well! and a sentiment.
Thanks for visiting today, hope you choose to play along with this lovely challenge, just click here for loads of wonderful inspiration from my talented teamies!

Challenges entered:

The black mats really make each layer pop! Love the rounded rectangles! They definitely remind me of the retro patterns!
