this card's design was based on this week's retrosketches #111
and the choice of colours were taken from colorQ challenge #238
* the card's base was kraft card, sprinkled over with Stampendous Frantage aged ivory embossing enamel and heat-embossed (I love the specks of gold sprinkled across the card)
* instead of using another patterned paper for the outermost square, I decided to go with a square of straw netting (which was inspired by the straw hat in the colorQ picture) layered over the purple distressed edged square
* 'thanks' sentiment is a die-cut on yellow glitter paper - die-cut is from Paper Smooches - Quote Tag dies.
I particularly like how the tiny flowers appear as if they are caught among the netting!
