I want to go back to the 1960s!

Here is my Artist trading card for the Scrapadoodle's ATC trade for "what era do you most want to live in."
I actually tie dyed the paper towels! LOL. And hand cut the fringe.
It is cute though, huh.
This is the rough draft. I may add some more elements and not make it so symetrical.
