Artisan Wednesday WOW - My Retro Fresh Cards

Welcome back to Artisan Wednesday WOW! Our hop this month will be full of inspiration from the new 2014 Occasions Catalog! Be sure to come back each week!
Today, you just came from Cathy Caines and next is Connie Collins, but before you come check out my version of a Retro Fresh card!

Last week, several of the Artisan Design Team members posted projects using the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper so this week I decided to share my version. I was inspired to create something for my brother's BIG 40 birthday next month! 
I think some of my favorite parts are the following
: the Retro Fresh Washi Tape on the Twill Ribbon
: the Starburst Framelit piece cut piece
: using another stamp senitment in the Quote Bubble Framelits
: the punch board created DSP envelope to match the card
: using Retro Fresh Washi Tape on the envelope
And just for good measure on using up more of that Retro Fresh DSP, I made another card. I absolutely love the Essentials Wooden Elements! They are so cute! Notice the Baker's Twine in another color? I made my own using the Tangerine Tango Stampin Up Write Marker. I always wanted Baker's Twine in more colors and now I can using this technique! FUN! 
Be sure to check on Stampin Up Facebook page for our monthly Artisan project share! I totally love my project this month! Hope you do too!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this inspires you!
