~ Crafty Secrets DT Challenge ~ Retro Inspiration

Warning: this is officially known as "retro-fail"...

I tried. at least I think I did.
the only thing that came to my mind when I thought of "retro" was: red. So I made a red card. Duh me!

Cherry-patterned paper from Crafty Secrets' Vintage Patterns CD {I can't wait for the next CD to come out! this one is so much fun and loveliness}, Garden Creative Scraps, and Birds and Blossoms Creative Scraps. Other goodies are from Melissa Frances and etsy finds.

Okay, for more projects that actually have a retro-theme (unlike mine... blah!) visit the other Crafty Secrets Design Team members!
