Happy Thursday!  I made a card for this week's Make It Monday Challenge.   I am also playing along with this week's Retro Sketch Challenge. 

 This week's MIM is all about double backgrounds.  I used PTI Inspiration Background Basics and Half and Half both stamped in Fine Linen ink to create my double background.  I then added one panel of dotted scarlet jewel paper topped with a dark chocolate half and half die stamped with dark chocolate image that coordinates with the one used for the background.   
I added a tag using Mat Stack 7  embossed  with sentiment used from the Delightful Additions set.    I then added a Delightful Additions  flower topped with scarlet jewel button.  The entire background panel was added to a scarlet jewel background that was embossed with PTI impressions plate.  As far as the sketch goes, I turned it upside down.  






As always thanks so much for stopping by!
