RRCB148 Birthday Celebration

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Time for a new Retro Rubber Challenge where we give our "retro" stamps (at least a year old) some love!  This challenge fit perfectly into my calendar:

because yesterday was John's birthday!  So here we go:

Not as colorful and festive as the photo prompt, but if you knew John, "colorful" would not be an adjective you would use to describe him!!!  Instead, I used some "manly" elements...silver embossing, silver brads and silver tools!!!  My sentiment is from Suite Sentiments (2017), stamped in Stazon Black on Very Vanilla and diecut with a Stitched Shapes square die and layered with some Silver foil:

The dies are ones I got several years ago from My Favorite Things:

And the inside sentiment is from a set I got eons ago when Cornish Heritage Farm was still around!

The sketch is from Try Stampin' On Tuesday:

So I hope you'll play along with our birthday challenge this week...if you're like me, you always need birthday cards, especially masculine ones!  Just be sure to use stamps that are at least a year old, and tell us how old they are!  Can't wait to see what you create...share it over at the Retro Rubber blog!  See you there!

What a manly card LeAnne and from your description of John I'd say it was perfect to celebrate his birthday! Love the combination of papers and those tools are fabulous! Vicky x

Happy belated Birthday wishes to John! This looks like a card my hubby would enjoy too...he's an industrial mechanic. Those little tools are fun and your card is terrific!

Heather said...

So fun, LeAnne - the little tool and rivet details are spot on, of course! Great guy card! Thanks so much for playing at TSOT!
