Thank you for joining us for Retro Rubber's 59th challenge!

The big 59!  Challenge number 59!  Retro Rubber has a fun sketch challenge in store for you this time!  Just use a stamp one year old or older and the following sketch!  Easy and fun!  Here is the sketch graphic and the project that I created for the graphic:

To create my project I used a lacy type floral die.  It is so large it almost covers the whole invitation sized card.  I used watercolor style paper from MFT for the die cutting.  Next, I adhered this die cut to the front of an invitation sized pre-folded white card.  

Next, I stamped four butterflies with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock.  I colored them with Copic Markers and fussy cut the images.  I added foam adhesive to the butterflies for dimension.  I bent the butterflies at the center to make them appear to be resting from flying.  Resting in a flower garden.  Next, I added the hello sticker from Krazy Kreations.  The stamp set is from Hampton Arts and I have had it a long time.  The date is from 2010.  I will never part with this set.  It comes with 6! butterflies of different sizes and designs!  

Please join our challenge!  Then join us back at the Retro Rubber Blog the Sunday after the challenge ends to learn the challenge winner!  Thanks for joining the fun!  

I also entered the challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Blog, come join me there also!
