Spruced Up: A Retro Joy Card

Spruced Up: A Retro Joy Card

Today I am continuing with my Spruced Up project share.  This time I have a very different, kinda retro card to share with you.  I went completely non-traditional colours and brought in lots of foil to create a really unique card to share with you.

I also used a few elements from the Santa Express Memories & More card pack … which if you haven’t checked out yet, you must!  It is an absolutely fabulous collection of cards, stickers, wooden elements & printed window sheets – I wish that I had discovered it sooner 😉.  I’ll be live on my Facebook page tonight at 7:00pm (PST) for my weekly Tutorial Tuesday and have another card that features elements of this pack and of course, the Spruced Up bundle!
