For the cut files I used SVG Cuts Cruising Caravan and Everyday Cards
The decorative papers are Sweet Day from Echo Park digital.
I also used Trendy Twine's Gray Licorice and Black Licorice.
For the background I just used plain black cardstock and I dressed it up with white zig-zag stitching. I also did a straight stitch on the green Bazzill cardstock.
I'm really pleased with the nostalgic feel of this card and I love how the yellow and pink pop off the black background.
I hope this inspires you to think of a creative alternative in your crafting.
