Pretty in Green.....

No photo description available.

Hello Everyone: It's time to play again with us at the RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE and we have a fun and popular challenge for you.  Tic Tac Toe gives you a lot of choices so, go get your older than one-year stamps and come join us in our gallery.
This is the card I made and I hope it inspires you to play along.

I chose the middle vertical line on the grid, "Green, Birthday and Sequence, Pearls or Rhine Stones".
My images are from a retired SU set called "Fabulous Florets" that came out in the 2011 Stampin' Up! Summer Mini.  The flowers and leaves were stamped and heat embossed in white on Vellum, I stamped the solid image twice with Old Olive and outlined with a white gel pen. 
The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Dynamic Duos:Peonies and Tulips stamped in Olive Green on a tag that my dear friend and card swapping buddy, Sonny Peterson sent to me, she sent a whole bunch and I'm so grateful.
The Rhine Stones are from my stash.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

Stamped an image from the retired SU set called "Delicate Details" (2017 SAB), the sentiment is from another retired SU set called "Whimsical Words" (another SAB set, this one is from 2010), the little candles are from a Penny Black set called "Cupcakes", I've had this set for 3 years.

So I hope you come and join us at the RETRO RUBBER gallery, we can't wait to see what you create.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

THis is gorgeous, Maria! What a fresh springy creation, just what I need on this snowy day! This would also work well with Stamp Ink Paper's challenge this week, which is vellum!!!

Love your vellum flowers and the combination of greens is so pretty...gorgeous card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and your card really is a good interpretation of the AHSC #303 which we are partnering with in our challenge (link is in our post) and would love you to share this card in their challenge too. Please come back and check out Thing 1, 2 and 3 for other fun challenges.

This is a beauty ! Your choice of greens resulted in a lovely presentation . I must say that the tag is equally as lovely .

Leslie Miller said...

Those are some of the prettiest vellum flowers, Maria! Love your choice from the board as green is one of my favorite colors and, of course, it always looks good with flowers. Can always use more birthday cards, too! I'd forgotten how cute that little Power Poppy sentiment is. Beautiful card!

Those are terrific flowers - and I love that you coloured them in shades of green. Very spring-like! Thanks for sharing with the Double Trouble challenge :)

The vellum flowers are such stunners, Maria! I'm loving this clean style you've been playing around with lately. Your winner at CASology was fabulous!

Beautiful use of green one of my favorite colors! The white embossed vellum a delicate touch beautiful!
