Rockin' 70s

Hey y'all, how's it going?  I really need to learn *not* to try reading right before bedtime...I always stay up too late!  But I got my trusty mug o' tea this morning and a card to share.

Let's start with the Retro Rubber Challenge:

I used Delightful Dijon (harvest gold), Always Artichoke (avocado green), Really Rust (burnt orange), and Chocolate Chip (brown), so even my colors are retro!  As for the stamps, For the Record isn't retro yet, but Music from the Heart is at least 2 years old, Epic Celebrations is 4 years old, and Gorgeous Grunge is 8 years old.  Man, for a while there I used Gorgeous Grunge on *everything*, so it was fun to bust it out again for this!  Also, as for the 70s theme, I think I've already mentioned that I recently bought my first pair of bell bottom pants and I'm working on putting together an epic 70s playlist (it's an ongoing process as I find more music!).  So no way was I letting this challenge pass me by.

But I played in two other challenges as well!  I used the sketch from Fusion:

And the inspo list from Festive Friday:

As someone who is allergic to the sound of silence, I really appreciated the music theme this time around.  I used music notes, white, an instrument (guitar), embossing, and a circle.  Half the list ain't too bad.

Have a great day!

Supplies, all SU! (many retired)
Stamps:  For the Record, Music from the Heart, Epic Celebrations, Gorgeous Grunge
Ink:  Versamark, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Always Artichoke
Paper:  Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Thick Basic White, Always Artichoke DSP
Accessories:  Layering Circles dies, Stylish Shapes dies, clear EP, Dimensionals

And here's my awesome butterfly bell bottoms!

I need to have them hemmed; the hems are unfinished and even wearing tall espadrilles, these pants drag on the floor.  But I loves them!  And I *have* worn them out in public!

Okay first I was going to say I love the paper the notes are on, then I just love the whole card! Then I may have made a concerned face about you having spent money on bellbottoms, lol, but I'm loving the pants! FUN!
I looove 70's music, lol, tho I might love the 60's more, haha. Personally I'm doing okay with the ready-made playlists and stations on the Amazon Prime music app. :) Good luck to you!

This is a brilliant design - how genius to pair the guitar with the record! Fun take on our colors! And where can I get those pants?? Lol, too cute! Thanks so much for playing at Retro Rubber!

Love how you put all 3 of the challenges together to make such a fun card! (Not quite as fun as your butterfly pants though!) Thanks for sharing with us at Festive Friday.

First of all, I can't believe Gorgeous Grunge is 8 years old, but you're probably right! I love all your musical elements...they work together perfectly, and the 70s was definitely my musical era. Now, those bellbottoms.....OH MY GOSH!!! They're stunning! Love them, makes me want to go stamp some butterflies and color them in! Thanks for sharing everything with us this week at Retro Rubber!

A fun and fabulous card! Great color combination. Your butterfly pants are show stoppers too!
