It is time for Retro Rubber Challenge #42! Please join the challenge!

Please join us over at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog for challenge #42.  The challenge involves using brads or eyelets and a stamp one year old or older!  Bring those old stamps back to life!

Here is the challenge graphic and the card I created using this challenge:

I had a great time doing this challenge.  First I took pink cardstock and folded and trimmed it to invitation size at 5 1/2" by 4 1/4".  Next, I trimmed a piece of violet cardstock slightly smaller and glued it down.  Then, with an even smaller piece of white cardstock, I ran it through an embossing folder by Darice, then adhered it to the card front.  

I tied a piece of light pink (sheer) ribbon to the left.  Then, I used a piece of patterned paper in grey tones, trimmed it smaller than the white cardstock, and rounded the edges,  Using a Spellbinders die, I trimmed white cardstock into  the circular shape shown.  I stamped directly on this piece using my Misti and stamps that are a few years old from A Jillian Vance.  I colored the stamped images using Copic markers.  I did the shadows in grey.  I found a fun, very old brad in my collection in pink with a button like appearance.  I thought this would be cute in the tire center.

I used an EK Success adhesive heart, then using dimensional adhesive I added the grey paper and scalloped circle to the card.  Quick, simple and fun!  I love this older stamp set and can't part with it!

Please join us in the challenge!  Then check back to the Retro Rubber Blog one week from this Sunday to learn the challenge winner!  I can't wait to see your creations!
