Gorgeous Grunge with Retro Fresh

This card is inspired - well, CASEd in fact - from a Convention swap I received from the very talented Kim Fee. Her card (below) was one of my favourite swaps, so we decided to CASE it at a recent Crafty Friday. 

I was running short of Epic Day washi tape, however, so used the opportunity to make something with my brand new Spring/Summer catalogue products. I swapped the washi for Retro Fresh and adjusted the colours accordingly. Instead of the small scalloped circle, I used one of the fabulous wooden elements and, because I don’t actually own that little star punch (just borrow it a lot), I used the small heart instead. The glimmer paper is sprayed with Early Espresso and Coastal Cabana inks (long story) to make it a lovely platinum. I used this purely because I couldn’t find any other, although I think Champagne Glimmer would probably look the best with this colour scheme.
