Retro Skectches and CAS-ual Friday!

We got rain!!  I'm doing the happy dance!  The best part is, we got rain here in NY (where we are still visiting) but we also got some at home in Iowa where it was desperately needed.  Thank the Lord!  My husband and I have no idea what his crops look like since he's in Alabama and I'm in New York.  We can only hope that everything is not totally dead.  What a year!  On a watery note, I decided to play along with both the CAS-ual Friday challenge of using lime, aqua, and navy (my FAV color combo!) and the Retro Sketches #22 challenge.  I LOVE the sponsor, The Alley Way Stamps, and couldn't wait to break out my TAWS!

This card took a ton of trial and error.  I must have changed the card base 4 times before I was happy with the color.  In the end, I'm super happy with how it all turned out!  I'm going to send it to my husband in AL to let him know I'm thinking of him.  :)
