Challenge #64 - We're Going Retro

This is my first attempt at a blog challenge.

This is for  Mo's Digital Pencil challenge #64, the only requirements were retro and using one of Mo's stamps.  So thought I would have a go!

I used this lovely image, as I thought it summed up carefree days in the 70's, this was when I was little, and surely that amounts to retro lol and the colours of oranges and browns, the orange is card stock I had a home and the spotty paper is from the Dovecraft, Piece of Cake 12x12 paper stack.  I added the blue and brown buttons to bring out the colours in the image.  The image was coloured using ProMarkers and I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page on the orange cardstock.
Hope you like it xxx
