1970's Retro for Mo's Challenge

Hi there I have been so quiet this year sorry to be so quiet. Since I have hurt my back I have lost a bit of my mojo for card crafting. I have knitted two scarfs though and started some booties for two newborns. The first time I have followed a pattern. I find that really hard following patterns, instructions and rules.  I am a bit of  a throw it all together and see what happens chick.
I have been catching up with the cleaning that got neglected too. I invested in a Little Yello Steam cleaner and it is now my bestest friend. We spend  at least 45 minutes together a day but boy has the Housework become so much more fun xxx
I am entering this card into the fantabulous Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge. I love this challenge as I get to colour amazing images. This week their theme is "Going Retro". My partner and I often wish we were the age we are now in our favourite era the 1970's. I love glamrock, ABBA, hippies, peace, love, bra burning and political incorrectness!
So this is a little card reflecting the patterns of the 1970's. I am loving this colour combo at the moment too so sorry to be repetitive.
The image is Pug Love I love this image oh I love all Mo's images. I wanted to use Wonderful Day her latest release but of course I have run out of printer ink so couldn't print her even thought I have purchased her. I coloured with promarkers and copics. The papers are DCWV and the ribbon from a grab pack at The Ribbon Girl.

Wonderful card! It actually covers two eras, because pink and gray was THE color combination in the early 50's. I remember my teenage brother wearing a pink and gray argyle sweater. Glad you joined us Mo's Challenge.
