To A Wild Rose Retro Rubber 138

This week, it's everyone's favourite at Retro Rubber - Anything Goes. Of course, since this is Retro Rubber, we do still require you to use at least one stamp that's older than a year and to tell us the approximate age of your retro stamps.

To A Wild Rose and Very Versailles are both sets that first appeared in the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue and so are both a year old. In fact, the only new product in this card is the embossing folder, which is one half of the Greenery duo of folders from this year's catalogue.

I used the outline stamps from To A Wild Rose and coloured them using Stampin' Blends. I used various die cuts from the coordinating die set to build up the floral cluster. 

One of my favourite stamps is the script stamp from Very Versailles, which I stamped off in Sahara Sand to create part of the background.

The finishing touch was the addition of some of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels,  a product I had forgotten I had. So glad that I found them!

We'd love to see what you have to show us with your retro stamps. Visit the Retro Rubber Challenge site to see what the rest of the design team have done and to join up your entry.
