Forever Lovely for Retro Rubber 128

This week at Retro Rubber, we have a colour challenge for you. 

The challenge is to use red, white and pink in your card. Since this is retro rubber, we ask you to use a stamp that is at least a year old and tell us the approximate age of it. 

The lovely graphic that Jane has chosen brings to mind a love theme, which you are free to use (or not). Clearly, I did! I made a set of six 3x3 note cards, perfect for adding to a lunchbox (or briefcase) or for use as gift tags. I made a lidded box to put them in.

I had the great privilege of presenting the Forever Lovely set at OnStage Auckland in November 2018, so I know that it is from the January 2019 Occasions catalogue and just fits into the 'at least a year old' category. However, the paper I used is straight from this year's January-June Mini Catalogue, From My Heart.

To add a little more sparkle, I've used Shimmery Black embossing powder because I like the subtle shine it gives. On the box top, I've added in a couple of clear epoxy heart embellishments that I've coloured with a Real Red dark Stampin' Blend.

The team would love to see what you do with this red, pink and white colour challenge. You can see what the rest of the team have done, and link up your entry, by visiting Retro Rubber Challenge.
