Throwback Thursday, The Paper Players #90, and Retro Sketches #6

Happy Thursday Everyone!  Boy, that blog post is a mouthful, isn't it??  ;)

My card today plays along with two great challenge sites.  The first is a color challenge from The Paper Players (Not Quite Navy, Pool Party, & Certainly Celery).  And second, I'm joining the sketch challenge at Retro Sketches for the first time.  I've been following their sketches, but this is the first time I've played along.

And the "throwback" part of my card is an older SU stamp set that I WON (tee hee) as blog candy from Heidi after a Friday Mashup challenge (thank you, Heidi)!

My picture is a little dark here, but you can see the little bit of shimmer I added to the jars with my clear Atyou Spica pen.  I tried to not get carried away with adding Not Quite Navy to my card, because I wanted it to have an overall soft, pastel feel, along with a clean and simple look also.

A peek at a bit of "love" added to the inside.

I hop you pop over to both of the challenge blogs and have a look at the other entries.  Trust me, it's fun and inspiring!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
