As you can see the Sketch this week is great as usual, and the rounded corners really add some fun too!

You know how you make a card sometimes and you think if you just add one more thing it'll be perfect but you still don't like it?  Well that's what happened with this one.  I spent waaaayyyy too much time on it, and some days you just have to throw in the towel, push it aside, and stop.  I'm not sure what is bugging me about it, but it's not a favorite.  Anyhoo...I used the Retro Sketch #46 and I'm joining the challenge over at Color My Heart-Color Dare #25!
