Sketch time on Heart2Heart

I think sketch challenges are my favourites - you want to follow the guidelines, but still put your own 'spin' on it...  With this week's Heart2Heart Challenge sketch, I'm using what is probably my favourite new stamp set in the CTMH spring catalogue - Retro Tech.  I'm not sure why it's my favourite, but it just has a funky vibe for me, and I really love it paired with the Mayberry papers.  I sponged all of the edges of my card with Desert Sand to give it a slightly aged look (doesn't really show in the photo), and all of the records were stamped in black, then clear embossed to make them shiny.  I'm having fun 'staging' my photos lately, so I went rummaging around in my basement to dig out one of my favourite albums, from the first concert I ever went to.  Can anybody see what album it is in the photo??  Vicki Wizniuk is joining us this week as our guest designer, and we have 2 new sponsors for the month of February: Shirley Ross & Sandra Strickler, so take a minute to stop off at their blogs and say hello.  Hope you'll all head over to the H2H blog and join us this week!

Patterned papers are Mayberry; Cardstock is Black, Smoothie & Colonial White; Inks are Black and Desert Sand; Stamp set is Retro Tech; - all CTMH; Martha Stewart Baker's Twine.
