Retro Sketches #16

Today I'm doing the  Retro sketches challenge. This was a real challenge to me so many elements on there.  So I stuck to Black and white with a bit of a stripy grey paper, all paper and card stock was Kazsazz.  I  was happy with the little stampin'up bird cage, I hadn't used that one before and it stamps up lovely.  
So here is my card....

Have a great day 
Sandy :)


  1. Lovely card, nice in black and white. Thank you for playing along at RetroSketches ; )

  2. I love it! Black and white is always so striking together. That sketch is crazy. It would have had me screaming, running for the hills. I always want to put more "stuff" on my cards (layers, die cuts, ribbons, embellishments, etc.) but I never can seem to do it. I guess it isn't me. I really like what you've done with this card and all its "stuff."

  3. I'm so impressed with this! That sketch scared the crap out of me and I didn't even try it. Good for you to manage it with a great card!!

  4. What a pretty card! I love the birdcage! Thanks for playing along with us at RetroSketches!

  5. Great card Sandy - love the black and white layouts! Very nice, clean and simple card.
    Saw it on MIM.
