Retro Modern holiday

 
Retro Modern holiday
 
The Gals at Festive Fridays were so welcoming on my first entry, that I made another card to add to the collective. 
 
This is more of a Retro "Twist" than a total fit to the challenge.
I always think that Poinsettia's are old fashioned, they remind me of my great grandmother as I remember her having them around.  She was a keen gardener and always had such magnificent flowers of all kinds.
 
I have collected a few stamps that I wanted to make a vintage feel card with.
 
I made this card Retro with a Modern twist.
Retro in the colors of Chartreuse and the Fuscia,
and Modern
 in the trending glitz and design layout.
 
 
 
Supplies:
Stamps: Large: AMuse
Smaller flowers: Inkadinkadoo Peppermint Twist Set
Sentiment: Hampton Art
Ink: Memento Lilac Posies, Versamark Magenta, Memento New Sprout
Sequins, Accent Dots

I am so glad you were inspired to come back and play with us again! I LOVE what you came up with, and how you put a few things together to bring your own twist to the theme. The colours work so well together, and I love the layout on your single layer! Thanks for playing with us again!
