Going Retro with the Mo Manning Challenge

Hiya Everyone, Happy Friday Again :O) its very wet here in London the sun is out a little so maybe some Rainbows to see later. I have made this card for the Challenge over at Mo's who have the fantastic theme of "Going Retro" this is open to your intrepretation.....

There is a fab part of in the film Catch me if you Can, where he has this house, with pool, and he tells them not to spill their drinks etc etc... that sums up Retro for me, rounded corners on furniture, aquas, oranges and browns together, and lots of mismatch patterns, So I tried to put that on my card. The image is the gorgeous Wonderful Year I missed her as a freebie but knew she had to come be part of my little collection lol, a dream to colour up, which I used copics, promarkers and polychromos. The paper is from my stash, and lots of flowers for me!

Thanks for Stopping By x x x
