RRCB158 Happiest of Birthdays

 Hi peeps, happy Tuesday!  We've got a new Retro Rubber challenge up for you, where we give our older stamps some love!  This week we have a Tic-Tac-Toe grid:

I am sure you can find something on our grid to tickle your fancy!  I went with the center column down of patterned paper, heat embossing and ribbon!  So here we go:

I started with a sketch from Try Stampin on Tuesday:

and some retired DSP called Garden Lane.  The sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday (2018) that was positioned in my Stamparatus and stamped with Mint Macaron ink, then re-stamped in the same position with Versamark ink and heat-embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  

I cut it out with the Tasteful Labels dies and added some Mint Macaron ribbon and a few Soft Seafoam faceted embellishments.  It all went on a Soft Seafoam card.  I already have this card ready to go out to a recipient whose birthday happens to be today! 

I hope you'll play along with our challenge this week and have some fun with our tic-tac-toe grid!  Hop on over to the Retro Rubber blog to see what our designers did!  Just make sure to stamps that are at least a year old, and tell us how old they are!  

A couple of weeks ago, Cassidy did some chalk artwork on our driveway and created a bird:

She named it "Sher-bird"....because it looked like the colors of sherbet!!!

Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I saw this on Retro Rubber but didn't pay attention to who made it. When I saw it I thought, "I wish I had bought that DSP because I love it!" Now I see it's yours!! It's a winner in my book!!! Great artwork by Cassidy.

Your card is such a lovely mix of patterns, LeAnne! Great interpretation of the sketch. (Sherbird looks pretty good, too.) Thank you for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday #505.

Such a pretty combination of greens and patterns. The swish of ribbon if the perfect elegant touch.

LeAnne: I love this combination of colors, patterns and textures, what a sweet and beautiful card.
This is a great way to use all of those bits and pieces of DSP we just won't throw away.
And I love seeing Cassidy playing outside like this, she doesn't seem to mind the hard floor under her knees and elbows, ahhh!! that's what it means to be a kid.
Stay healthy and safe.
