Same Earrings As High School

Hi there.  Hope you are having a good weekend so far!  It has rained here for days and there is no let-up in sight.  It's OK, because I am busy inside, but it definitely puts an additional damper on my mood.  Anyway, I am here with a super quick post today to share a preview of one of the new sets in the Create With TLC store.  It's a fun vintage image that I'm sure you will enjoy!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Island Indigo and the retro patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Trendsetter Petite Papers pack.  The image can be found here.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added Stickles to the peace sign earrings and Glossy Accents to the sunglasses.  The sentiment is also from Create With TLC.  Some cute trims from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I am sorry that I am not getting to visit much these days.  I will as soon as I can.  I will be out of town for the next several days, so all my posts will be pre-scheduled.  I hope to get back into my crafting and blogging routine when I get back.

I am entering my card in the following challenge:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #205 (sketch)

Here is TMS-205:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
