TGF's August Retro-Fresh!

Hello!!  Thanks everyone for all your sympathy regarding my Copic buying woes!  Apparently, Copic at the corporate level (in Japan) has set this policy for stores to sell within their own territories and well, Oahu doesn't rate I guess cause we get no online choices.

Anyway, it's that time for The Greeting Farm's monthly Retro-Fresh Challenge!  This month's theme is Golden Hour -- use the colors yellow, orange and baby blue.  Seems easy enough, right?  Don't forget to also use a TGF image that is at least 6 months old!  This challenge is meant for us to use our oldies but goodies.  Check out the list HERE!

Here's my card!  I used Hippie Anya!  While I was looking through all my stamps for this challenge, Hippie Anya just seemed to scream those colors.  I don't really know, but I think I'm going through some one layer, simple card phase these days.  Do you go through phases too?  I just stuck some washi tape onto my card base.  The sentiment is from TGF's Roll Call Kit.  It didn't stamp too well on the washi tape part so I just went over it with my black Copic multiliner pen.

I covered her flower and the rectangle patch on her jeans with Glossy Accents and Stickles to her necklace and head thingy.  What do you call that?  I think she looks pretty groovy.  Ha! 

Please check out TGF's blog for challenge details and more cool inspiration by the Showcase DT.  I'm so loving being on this team.  Can time please slow down?  Thank you.

Thanks for reading!

Super fun and funky Eva! Those colors are some of my faves. I think I will play along cause as much as I love the new images, the old ones have a special place in my heart. Thanks for the cuteness!

Love your background! I thinkyiouknow I like to make that kind of burst background with watercolors (He-art Journal) and Hippie Anya is one of my favorites! I think I was born a little to late because I really like stuff from the '60s and early '70s.

Really Groovy card!
