Hello and welcome! This post is for the RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE #112. It's an  embellishment challenge for us to use Buttons or Bows on our cards!  And...I am the Guest Designer for this challenge...Yay!! Thank you Ladies for inviting me to join in with you all! Below is the challenge inspiration photo:

Here is my card:

I still love this set and should probably use it more. It's from Stampin Up and it's call Petal Potpourri. This set came came out about 2015 and has a matching punch. I also used the Buffalo Check background check from Stampin Up from 2018 I believe. I was going to layer with solid green, but thought the check added some interest and dimension. I chose bright colors on crisp white so they would pop!(Lemon Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo & Grapefruit Grove) Then I added the buttons to the middle of my flowers and my card was done!

Thanks for coming by and checking things out. Please stop by the blogs of the Retro Rubber Design Team Ladies and check out the lovelies they created. Hope to see you in the gallery...


  1. I'm so pleased to have you guest designing with us this week. I love the fresh, clean colours you've chosen. I like the way you've used two patterns for this technique - I've only ever done it with a pattern and a plain colour - but then, too many patterns scare me off! You've made them look magical together.

  2. So happy to have you with us at Retro Rubber as GDT. I love your card, I am terrible at this technique, so I always love to see it done correctly!! I love the use of the buttons as flower centers. Hope to see you in the gallery again soon. Claire DT
