Retro birthday

Over at the Colour Crazy Challenge blog this week, 
the very popular Dr Digi is our sponsor. 
I got this fab, retro image "unwind"
and used it to make a card for my friend's birthday. 

 I used some retro patterned papers from my DCWV paper pack,
inked all the edges and added white dots with my sakura pen.
The image was simple to colour and I 
drew on some lines to make it look like an old cassette tape I used to have
and it was also handy to have somewhere
to write the sentiment! 
You can't tell on the picture, but I 
used glossy accents on the tape parts of the cassette. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Mother's Day

At Patties Creations, the usual "anything goes" challenge
has just started - but you can join in with the theme, which is butterfly/dragonfly.
I used two of Patties images:
Butterfly 1 (both butterflies are this image, just flipped and resized.)
and Succulents with hanging vases...

 I wanted to make this into a Mothers day card for my mother-in-law
and used backing papers in colours I knew she would love. 
I added a sentiment onto the succulents image, which I coloured with my promarkers
and other alcohol markers. 
I used glossy accents on the vases and coloured and fussy-cut the butterflies. 
I added a little 3d foam underneath the wings to give some dimension
and a punched leaf next to the sentiment.
