Retro Sketch 138

Runway Inspired Challenge

While browsing the web, hopping from one great card blog to the other I came across the Runway Inspired Challenge Blog.

I do have to admit it took me some time to come up with something I was happy with, but I got it done, here is my take on the challenge:

After taking a few looks at the card I should have chosen a different sentiment, but it was stamped and done. I think a sentiment like “Just a Note” would have worked out better than the one I chose. That’s why I guess it’s very important to really think your cards through before stamping anything permanent. Hope you still enjoy the card!
