Retro Rubber Challenge 205

Today over at Retro Rubber's 205th Challenge (RRCB205) there's a great sketch. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to use two-sided patterned paper. What a cute way to show off both sides of these great sheets. Everyone on the design team did just that, except for Jane. All the cards are wonderful, but her card is so different! It took a totally different spin on it and used geometrics at the corner. It's such a fun and colorful card. I'm loving that new Parakeet Party color too. I've pinned it for inspiration later on. Be sure to check out their blog.

Anyway, the next thing I thought of when I saw this sketch is an animal popping out of the corner. I found just the critter from an old Close To My Heart Set from 2016. The card is a standard A2 size card, but with the rabbit popping out of the top, it's going to have to be mailed in a 5 x 7 envelope.

My full supply list is:

  • Black Card Stock
  • White Card Stock
  • CTMH's Spring Critters (2016)
  • CTMH's Spring Critters Dies
  • Memento Black Ink
  • Copics RV00, R20, BG72, YG61
  • Misc. Black Button
  • Stampin' Up! Blushing Bride Gathered Ribbon
  • Jen Hadfield Flower Patch Patterned Paper from American Crafts

I own a "thank you" to a the owner of our antique mall who gave me a couple of really cute mini baskets. I can't remember if I thanked her. It's so embarrassing. Even though we're taking a break from selling antiques right now, I want to keep in good standing with her, and she deserves the thanks either way. Sometimes I get too caught up in my own thoughts that I fail to be kind and considerate to others. It's something that I'm working on. And at least it's a good reason to send out another card!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
