Retro Rubber Challenge #9 / SSS Wednesday Challenge / The Card Concept #30



The folks at Retro Rubber Challenge #9 want us to use tags. Remember the idea behind this challenge is to use stamps that are at least one year old. So I dug out a very "vintage" tag stamp from Hero Arts and made this card:


keepintouchcards.blogspot.com



Stamps: Beeswax (background), Hero Arts (tag)


The background stamp is from my friend L who assured me that it is quite old. I started this card last Thursday at our get together but finished it at home.

There has been an overabundance of pale lavender cards on this blog which is unusual for this bright-rainbow-color-loving girl but I rediscovered my Colorbox Chalk Inks and liked the soft look and creaminess for those stamps. I promise to post more colorful cards again soon!

Challenges:

Retro Rubber #9 "Tag, You're It"


RRBC09
















Simon Says Wednesday "Special Lady/Girly"


The pale lavender and the bling make this card definitely girly, I think!

Such a sweet card! I dearly love fushia (so do hummingbirds) and think they do justice to the pale lavender card. Your tag and bling add just the right amount of detail. Thanks for sharing this with RRBC... hope to see you play often.
