ColourQ and Retro Sketch

So here is my first attempt at a Retro Sketches challenge – Challenge #26 to be specific – using the ColourQ #152 colors:

I went with a masculine, belated birthday theme because my stepfather’s birthday was almost 2 weeks ago.  And because of all the vacation business,… I forgot to send him a card – Ack!

Getting some new usage here are my recently-purchased Chevron Stripes dies from PTI and Pinking Edge die from MFT Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
