It is time for Retro Rubber Challenge #38! Let's have some fun!

Thanks for stopping by!  It is time for Retro Rubber Challenge Blog's 38th challenge!  The theme this time involves using an inspiration photo, 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 white cardstock folded into a rectangular style card, a piece of patterned paper from My Favorite Things (6 by 6 paper pack, "Painted Prints Smitten"), a sticker from SRM, two wooden hearts from Studio Calico, some ribbon, Memento ink in London Fog, a piece of white cardstock for stamping, my Misti stamping tool, and a stamp from Darkroom Door, "Roses" dated from 2009, and three Copic markers, V15,  RV63, and Y15.  Finally I used a paper punch from EK Success and pink cardstock.
After preparing the background card surface, I stamped onto the piece of loose cardstock using my Misti, the ink and the stamp.  Next, I colored the roses with the markers.  I trimmed the rose image.  Then I trimmed the patterned paper and punched one edge.  I placed the patterned paper behind the pink cardstock, added the roses, and added dimensional adhesive, then tied ribbon around and around the front of the roses, securing behind.  I secured this whole panel to the card front.  I added the sticker, and took an additional piece of ribbon and tied a bow onto the ribbon layers.  Using the wooden hearts and markers, I colored the hearts then placed them on the bow. 
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!
