Retro Sketches time!

It's time for another Retro Sketches card - I'm playing along with Arielle, Kasia and Laurie and as a guest designer during January - here's my card, based on a sketch from a card by Laurie.
I used some absolutely beautiful Japanese paper on this card - I left the rest very simple to let the paper take centre stage. The sentiment is one of my very first stamp purchases - it's VERY old - from Artee Stamps - I thought the calligraphic font went well with the Japanese paper.
Come on over to Retro Sketches to check out what the other design team members came up with, and join in on the fun!
Thanks for visiting :)
