MDSM12 Happy Retro New Year

Time for another MDS Monday challenge.  Holly has a fun sketch for us and a challenge to use the Brush Tool somewhere on your page.

Here is my page.  I didn't use any special tricks with it, just straight-forward.

I started with the Happy Hour ensemble, and I ended up with this retro feel.  Funky but I kinda like it.  Love the "champagne bubbles".  Seems fitting because when visiting my in-laws in the Netherlands, lots of decor, furniture, and color schemes have a retro feel too.

I cheated on the Brush Tool technique.  The champagne glass looks colored, but there was an accessory in the ensemble that came that way.  ;)  Edit to add: Now that I see the other DT samples, I see I was suppose to use the "freeform" function of the program, not the coloring tool for stamps.  Oops!  You'll do better than me, right?

Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment; Paper: Whisper White textured; Color Palette: Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple; Accessories: Happy Hour ensemble; Font: Bodoni MT Condensed, Arial.

Thanks for stopping by!

Channeling Lawrence Welk this time? :)
I used to watch that with my grandparents all the time, and it certainly brings back good memories.
