Serendipity 70's!

This week's challenge at Serendipity Stamps is to make a 70's card.  We could use 70's looking paper, colors and/or image.  I thought these cute button mushrooms looked 70's-ish!  And, who could forget all that orange and avocado green?  The ribbon reminded me of all those macrame projects I made (necklaces & plant hangers).  Finished size is 4 3/4 square.

Check out what the rest of the Design Team created!

How did I forget al those colors! We had an avocado fridge too! I also totally forgot about the macrame plant hangers. I made some for my whole family one Christmas! Great and it is certainly a blast from the past for me.
