RRCB170 Fall Flowers

Hi there!  Time for a new Retro Rubber challenge, where we give our older stamps some love!  Here's the photo prompt Jane has for us today....lots of possibilities on this one:

Since I just made a couple of pumpkin cards, I thought I'd concentrate on that bucket of flowers; I pulled out Basket of Wishes (2016) and Buffalo Check (2018) to make a sweet country-themed birthday card:

I stamped the basket on some Very Vanilla cardstock (which I should have known better to do, as my image warped a lot!) and stamped the design twice behind it, making it a wee bit higher because I wanted to stamp a third image and place it in front to give it some dimension.  All the flowers were colored with inks and an aquapainter. I fussy-cut the third image and popped it up to make the basket look nice and full:

I stamped a panel of Very Vanilla with Buffalo Check in Old Olive, added a piece of Cinnamon Cider DSP and a panel of Old Olive, diecut with a Stitched Shapes square die, then cut in half to make it into a rectangle!  I stamped a sentiment for the front:

and another for the inside, and my card was finished!

I am also going to enter this at the Double D Challenge this week, as their theme is sunflowers, and the Shopping Our Stash challenge, which is flowers!!

I am sure you'll be able to find some inspiration from our prompt this week...just be sure that your stamps are at least a year old, and be sure to tell us their age!  Can't wait to see what you create!  Check out what the other team members did over at Retro Rubber!

Pumpkin decorating the easy way---stickers and markers--no mess!!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning.  Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.  In him was life, and that life was the light of men.  The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood."  John 1:1-4
