Retro Sketches #53-Fun{tache}tic Day

I'm so excited to be joining the amazing team at Retro Sketches as a guest designer for March!  This week we're working with a sketch from Arielle.  I came up with a masculine card using the sketch. 

My card uses The Mustache Set from The Cat's Pajamas.  I die cut a mustache from felt using the coordinating CutUps Mustache dies and adhered it to a cream panel, then stamped the "have a fun{tache}tic day" sentiment beneath it in blue ink.  The panel is matted on blue and kraft cardstock, then adhered to the card over a trio of blue notch-ended strips.  I varied the widths of the strips a little and dotted the ends with some faux metal stud embellishments to add interest.  The pieces are set on a multicolored striped paper panel with machine stitched edges.  I used the same blue cardstock as I used on the card to set the patterned paper off from the kraft card base.

Stop by the Retro Sketches blog for more inspiration from the Retro Sketches team and for all the challenge details.

The Mustache Set stamp set, CutUps Mustaches die (The Cat's Pajamas); Memento Teal Zeal ink (Tsukineko); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); Blue Bayou and Very Vanilla cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Note to Self 6x6 paper pad (Echo Park); Dark Chocolate felt (Papertrey Ink); copper stud embellishments (Michaels); sewing machine
