Retro Sketch #123

Happy Friday, All!  Today I am playing along with this week's Retro Sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch:

And here is the card I made:

I'll be honest...I made the top part of this card to be a shaker card weeks ago, but I just couldn't get my brain to connect with my fingers when I was trying to make a card with it.  I ended up shelving it altogether.  So when I saw this sketch, I decided to pull it out and turn it into a non-shaker card.  I stamped the lightening bugs on vellum and then glued sequins on them.  Super cute!  I added all of the banners and some seam binding.  After the initial brain fog part of this card lifted, I was happy that the rest of it came together so seamlessly.  It turned out pretty cute! 

Here is a close up of the window:

That is all for tonight!  Until next time...
