STAMPlorations February Theme & Sketch Challenge

Hello crafty peeps and welcome!
It's a new month and so a new 

As always, you can just go with the theme, or just the sketch, or combine both!
I went with both theme and sketch. Here are my cards:

 and the inside:

 I went ahead and made another similar card:

 and the inside:

I started by cutting the main panels from STAMPlorations CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rect Nesting dies. I used some retro looking DP for both cards. I die cut the CUTplorations Awesome word die multiple times from scrap cardstock and glued 3 of them together, offsetting them. After they dried, I traced around it on another color of cardstock and fussy cut, and glued the stack onto the outline. I used stamps from the It's All About YOU boxed stamp set to complete my sentiment on the front, fussy cutting them and popping everything on thin foam squares. For the inside of my cards, I cut another panel and used stamps from the Blossom Overture stamp set.

Ready to get your retro on? Of course you are! I hope that you find some time this month to link up your creation at STAMPlorations February Theme & Sketch Challenge! I'd love to see it!
