Time for Retro Rubber Challenge #52! Let's have some fun!

Thanks for stopping by!  It is time for Retro Rubber Challenge Blog's 52nd challenge!  The theme this time involves using a sketch and a stamp one year old or older.  Too fun!  Here is the card that I created for this challenge and the photo inspiration image:

To create this card, I used a stamp released in July of 2015 by Technique Junkies, Peonies.   I inked the stamp with different colored inks from Tim Holtz (distress ink).  I used my small Misti to stamp the floral image onto a white panel.

Next, I mounted the white panel onto a black invitation sized card.  I took a piece of white glittered paper and stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts in black ink.  I placed this strip on the card with adhesive.  Next, I cut a smaller strip of the glittered paper and added it to the left far side of the card. Next I tied black cord from American Crafts on the card, and added a green dot.  

I'd love to see your creations for this challenge!  So come join the fun!  Visit the Retro Rubber Blog today, then revisit one week from this coming Sunday, to learn the challenge winner!
