Flashback Fancy Friday

This month's Fancy Friday Blog Hop is all about the 80s! As you may know, I was not around during the 80s, so I was a little worried about this challenge. 1980s Memphis Design is actually making a comeback and I was able to find a lot of inspiration to help me out. This design trend is all about geometric shapes, unique color combinations consisting of mostly pastels, and randomness. I kept these things in mind as I started this card, and I have to say that I kind of love it!

You will notice that I have several geometric shapes - the big circles, a couple of different rectangles, and squares of small dots. For the big circles I created a template with a 1/2" Circle Punch and scrap cardstock and sponged the color onto the card front. All of the other shapes came from Biggest Birthday Ever Set. There are three small rectangular images that are meant to be candles, but they were absolutely perfect for this! I repeated the polka dot candle in small sections to create the dotted squares. I used Sweet Sugarplum, Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Bermuda Bay, and Basic Black to get a color scheme that was spot on. The randomness comes in by just layering all of the elements. I even fussy cut each letter of "Thank You" (Scenic Sayings Set) to add to that sense of layering.
