Swinging Sixties...




Ooooh Fabaroonie dare!!!!

We've another Retro challenge for this week's Little Extra.This time we'd like you to find your inspiration in the 1960s.

Love anything to do with the 60's !!!! Ok I used Mary Quant as inspiration for the retro flower and added a 'Groovy' sentiment. I made the backgound (inspired by one of my Mum's fab 60's dresses!) and finished with a few primas(ok- so not very retro) and some lovely retro style mm brads. I inked the flower to make it stand out a bit and kinda wish I hadn't! Never mind 'tis done now!

Had such fun with this dare, thanks for such a great dare again ladies!!
