Sticking my neck out...

I love the cute clear stamp's from Darcie's Heart and Home.  I went a little crazy at her booth at a stamping expo, and I am excited to share my first creation with her stamps.

I am playing along today with Retro Sketches #123.  I am a big fan of sketches, because they give me a jumping off point - I know sometimes the end product does not always match the sketch to a "T" but I think this one is pretty close.  I was using up some scraps of my Chantilly paper pack from Close to My Heart.  Typically I am not a pastel person, but for some reason the soft colors of this paper pack drew me.  I especially love how they pop off the kraft cardstock, which is one of my favorite types of card bases!

I am also playing along with Cards Galore blog, use a stamp. :)

Here's Retro Sketches sketch:

Here's my take on it:

Happy Stamping!
