Retro Rubber Challenge #64...

Welcome to a new Retro Rubber Challenge! It’s Anything Goes!


So as freaked out as an anything goes challenge makes me, I somehow found some inspiration and whipped up this beauty. rrcb 64 1 (542x640)

I started by stamping these circle images in varying colors. I am using my Clearly Besotted Sunburst stamps circa 2015. Then I stamped some circles on scrap paper and die cut with my mini scallop die. rrcb 64 2 (640x456)

I added the sentiment, popped up the square and added a few dots. I am really pleased with this card!
