Best Wishes

Hi there! I LOVE this sketch from the most recent Retro Sketches Challenge:

...and the challenge ends TONIGHT, so I'm sneaking in a second post for today to share my creation.

My friend's bridal shower is at the end of this month. I found some GORGEOUS wrapping paper for her gift. It's black with giant cream flower outlines all over it. And of course I couldn't pass up the coordinating black and cream polka dot tissue paper! HA! So, this card was also inspired by those colors/designs. (I'll be sure to share a photo of the packaging once I wrap it all up.)

Thanks for stopping by!
