Good morning and hello! I have a card that I'd like to share with you. ☺ This is based on Mojo Monday #334:

Here's the finished inside:

My homage to Austin Powers - International Man of Mystery! LOL! My card measures 3-1/2" x 5-1/2", and I let the round element hang over the side a bit.

I had a retro vibe going on all over this card! I used DP dated 2008 for the vertical paper panel. (big groovy flowers!) For the horizontal stripes, I used the Retro Squares Die-Namics in three shades of purple. Once those were adhered to my base, I realized I didn't want to cover the squares up with the round element. Then I had an epiphany: use vellum! I made a round frame using a scalloped and circle dies. I printed my sentiment out on the computer, cut it out using another circle die, and glued it on from the underside of the frame. After coloring my image, I fussy cut and adhered her with foam squares. Another printed sentiment and retro square border finishes the inside. I had so much fun putting this card together!

Well, that's it for now. Thanks for hanging out a while with me, and I hope you get the chance to make something crafty today! Enjoy your day!
