Retro Christmas Card with Hero Arts

Welcome friends! This week Freshly Made Sketches hit an amazing milestone - 500 sketches!  I really wanted to play along with them to celebrate:
I thought the colors for the Color Throwdown challenge would be fun to use, too:

I began with a Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit I have from October 2019. And yes, it is still available!
Since I am a child of this era these iconic images really spoke to me.

I am also submitting to NBUS for I have never used this set before. So sad because I love it!
Just fun to stamp, die cut and play with these images. Even the inside received that retro font:
Lot of stars in this sky!
Thanks for joining me today and stop by the challenges to see all the amazing work submitted!
