Retro Sketches #31

Happy Tuesday...I had planned on posting this card yesterday but I was called in to sub and it was so hot when I got home I just wanted to melt! I won't complain too much because I know there were areas of the San Francisco bay area that were much hotter, but it was still hot no matter how you slice it. I finally had the chance to sit down and get another card made and this one I used some the new Papertrey Ink color, Limeade Ice, it is just beautiful. I also used the new loop de loop die to make the phone cord, just too cute!
Here is the wonderful sketch for this weeks challenge with Retro Sketches....

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend too with all of this beautiful weather...Ashleigh and I went to the Fox Theater in Oakland to see The Gaslight Anthem.  They were fabulous and the theater is just as fabulous...if you have never been there you need to go, it is just breath taking. The theater opened in 1928 as a movie theater and closed in 1970 but then fully restored and reopened in 2009.  We have been to several concerts here, I love the smaller size venue and the decor is just so beautiful.
