Groovy Girls in Retro Colors

I have been playing with some new colors that I don't normally use together. They kind of remind me of retro style 50's or 60's. Not sure what decade these colors were popular, but I am pretty sure it was before I was born. LOL!!

So I found a cute chipboard album kit by Maya Road at Ollie's Bargain Outlet for $7.99. I believe the kits sell for at least $20.00 normally. The kit contained some white core textured card stock, designer paper, chipboard pieces, stickers to match the DP, an 8 x 8 naked chipboard album and some page protectors.

I used some of the DP and card stock to make this card. First I stamped the girls from the retired Stampin' Up! set Girlfriends using Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Georgia Pacific White card stock. I colored them in using PrismaColor and Bic Markit markers. I layered the colored image onto some Olive Green Textured CS from the kit. Next I layered Orange Textured CS onto more of the Olive Green Textured CS. I layered a piece of Yellow DP onto the Orange. I cute a slit into the stamped image and base to thread and tie the yellow gingham ribbon. I layered everything onto Marigold Morning {retired} from Stampin' Up! I pulled out a felt flower that I bought several months ago from Target's Dollar Spot. I added a large brown brad from Basic Grey and attached it to the card.
