Butterfly Gala for Retro Rubber 130 - Design Team Card

It's time to get sketchy at Retro Rubber Challenge! Jane's given us a great sketch to work with and as usual, we ask you to use at least one stamp that's more than a year old AND tell us the approximate age of it.

Some of my favourites from last year's Occasions catalogue (January 2019) were the two butterfly sets, Butterfly Gala and Beauty Abounds. I've used both of them here: the punched butterflies are from Butterfly Gala while the lovely background swirls are from Beauty Abounds. Both of these sets, and the matching Butterfly punch, are still currently available.

The butterflies are copper embossed and sponged with Petal Pink. The mat layer of the card front is copper foil, embossed with the Scripty folder. This folder is so lovely - it adds elegance wherever it appears. The warmth of the foil is picked up in the Champagne rhinestones, a new product from the January-June Mini Catalogue.

We'd love to have you join in the challenge and show us how you see the sketch. You can visit the Retro Rubber Challenge site to see what the rest of the team have done with it and to link up your entry. You can play along until 20 March.
