Here in New Zealand, it's autumn and the leaves are falling, but it was good to start thinking of flowers for this challenge.
This time, the stamps I've used are really only just retro. The Altenew Peony Bouquet I've owned for about a year and I remember umming and ahhing for a while before buying it so I think it was part of the January 2016 release. It's a beauty but its four-step stamping meant it took a bit of practice to get it consistently right. But when it works, it is just so, so, so gorgeous and what says Spring more than the first peonies?
The sentiment is much more retro, since it's been retired for a while and came out in the 2013-14 Annual Catalogue.
The designer paper and the embossing folder are also both retro, having been around for well more than a year.
As always, the rules at Retro Rubber are very simple: use at least one stamp older than a year and tell us how old it is and don't link up to more than ten challenges in total.
We'd love to see what you do with our challenge when you dig out your old stamps for a bit of an outing. Link up your entry by May 19.
Since this card was inspired by the sketch at Fab Friday, I'd like to enter this card at their challenge too.
