Happy Wednesday!  It is time for some pink retro vibes with a new inspiration challenge!

The Card Concept has a new photo inspiration challenge starting today!  This one is all about Pink Retro!  Hope you can join us and play along.    I am also entering my card in SSS Wednesday Challenge (anything goes).

For my card, I started with some PTI select white card stock.  I die cut it using Avery Elle's Confetti Mat Elle Ments die.  I backed this panel with some lovely lady card stock using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  I added the combined panels to a top folding PTI select white card stock base using foam tape for some dimension. 

Next, I die cut three Altenew Fine Frames Circle dies using true black card stock.  I die cut three circles using hawaiian shores, lovely lady, and simply chartreuse cardstocks.  I stamped these circles with coordinating ink colors using Simon Says Stamps Amazing stamp set.  I added ink around the edges for added dimension.  I layered the three records using adhesive tape roll and some foam tape for layered variation.

I die cut a piece of lovely lady card stock using stitched rectangle.  I used a powder bag, versamark ink, and heat embossed using white embossing powder the sentiment from SSS Leafy Frame stamp set.

I finished my card with a few clear sequins!
Here is a list of many of the products I generally
 use every time I make a card.
