Guest Designer: Retro Rubber!

Surprise double post today!  I'm delighted to say that I am a guest designer for today's new Retro Rubber Challenge!

My stamp collection is....quite extensive, as you can imagine given that I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for over 15 years and I almost never get rid of any stamps.  I have literally hundreds of flower stamps to choose from, but my mind immediately jumped to one image in particular that I haven't played with in ages, check it out:

I could have gone with tulips like the inspo pic, but I couldn't say no to these sweet flowers!  The bouquet is from the stamp set Bloomin' Beautiful, which I've had since at least 2014, so quite retro.  The sentiment is retro too, Well Scripted has been in my collection for about as long as Bloomin' Beautiful, but for some reason I've only used it like twice before now.  I even dug out some retro tools--the Finishing Touches Edgelits and the Decorative Label punch (I think that one was called the Decorative Label punch...I have more than a few label punches).  I paired all this retro schtuff with some brand new colors!  This was actually the first card I made with this year's new In Colors, and I used Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky, and Parakeet Party.  Love them all, and they look fantastic together too!

Hope you'll join in the fun at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  I had a great time with this challenge and I know you will too!
