RRBC13Hello Stampers! Retro Rubber Challenge Blog started a great challenge last week and you guys are loving it! Thank you to everyone who has participated! There are still a few days left to submit your cards and with a challenge like “Anything Goes” there is no excuse not to! You can go to the Retro Rubber blog to see what the design team made then submit yours by this Friday, May 8th.

Here is my card: This card started with the retiring Painted Blooms DSP. This has been my all-time favorite DSP and have stocked up for years to come! I stamped the image from Sweetbriar Rose in Memento Black then used my blender pen to color the flowers which were then fussy cut and popped up. The entire image was also fussy cut as well. The butterfly was stamped and cut with the butterflies thinlits with another butterfly in Wild Wasabi for enhancement. Did you notice the little piece of White Jute Ribbon? It is quite easy to pull apart so you can use just small strips as ribbon and you can also use one strand to thread a button. I really like it for another natural thread in my collection!
