RRCB130 Country Birthday Wishes


Hi stampers!  Time for a new Retro Rubber challenge where we give our older stamps (at least a year) some love!!  We've got a fabulous sketch for you this week:  

Image may contain: text

I just LOVE this sketch---I love things in threes, so this was right up my alley!  I was perusing my vast selection of 6x6 papers and came across this pretty woodgrain paper in subtle shades, already cut to size!! Woohoo!  I mounted it on a Crumb Cake card base and went to work:

My main sentiment is from a 2016 SU set called Time of Year...I stamped it in Pretty Peacock and fussy cut it out:

I am thinking it might be a little too bold for these soft colors, but it's already done, LOL!  I added a little banner from the same woodgrain paper, and stamped "wishes" on it, then added some diecut stitched stars from the same paper pack below:

I added some silver metallic pearls just for fun!  My niece's birthday is coming up and she is all about country decor, so this will be for her!

How will you interpret this sketch?  The DT has some fun ideas, you need to hop on over to the Retro Rubber blog to check them out!  Remember, your stamps have to be at least a year old, and tell us the approximate age!  Almost every SU set can be found on Splitcoaststampers in the SU Gallery, if you need help!!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is so effective, LeAnne! Your paper stash has come to the fore yet again! But then it's what you did with it that makes it amazing.

Love the background paper LeAnne, it looks somewhat like the ones I use as background to photograph my cards, it's just perfect for your stars and the sweet Country feel of this card.

This is so pretty LeAnne, I love the soft colours and the stars coordinate so well. Claire x
