Retrosketches..You're Pure Magic..


I really liked the sketch this time from the Retro Sketches team -

It made me think of a new stamp set that I just's a bit of a reveal, I bought it for JT and I, but she doesn't know about when she reads this the jig is up!

She bought us both these wonderful dies on my last trip home -

JT said she really liked the 'magic' die and so I had to buy the Avery Elle 'Pure Magic' set for us to compliment the dies..yes that was my 'logical' thought process..

My card was simple to put together. I cut the stitched square in white, added red spotty washi tape and the die-cut magic, which I die-cut out of a scrap of glittery paper. Once the word magic was in place I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set.

It took a while to get my top hat bunny positioned right, but once he was in place I added black pearls and red blingy gems.

I love it! I have JT to thank, I kind of CASEd her that weird yet?


P.s anyone looking for a WOYWW post - ducking out this week, due to my workload...see you next week


  1. How cute are those little paws peeking out of that hat! Great interpretation of the sketch. Cara x

  2. Fantastic use of the new magic die, that's fab, as is your take on the sketch. I was overwhelmed by the sketch but that is really quite special. And reading your post....PRESENTS??! :) :)

    1. LOL. I find the RS sketches can be overwhelming, but I look at the DT cards and it helps. Yes PRESENTS!!!
