Let's Party

Hello Everyone! Today I decided to play along with Retro Sketches Challenge #53:

and also Lawnscaping Challenge #53 - Texture. Funny how they're both #53!

I created a "let's party" card using a lilac and black theme along with some mustard and pink for pop colours. 

The base cardstock is lilac and i embossed it using the Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder. I created a border using strips of black cardstock. The black panel in the middle is a handmade paper cardstock. I cut strips in it using my craft knife and weaved the strips of coloured paper through it. 

All the strips are differently textured as well. I added some hand-drawn stars with white gel pen and layered some star stickers on punched out circles to top the weaved strips. I added some alphabet stickers to spell, 'let's party' and some white dots around the center panel, et voila!

Thanks for stopping by and do leave me your comments! :)
