Silly Sealife Retro stamps meets Waves Of Inspiration Bundle

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today I'm taking part in a 'new to me' card challenge called Retro Rubber Challenge Blog - The challenge that loves old stamps.  Challenge #177 is a Tic Tac Toe challenge, I chose birthday, patterned paper and metallics.  

Please click on either my card or the #rrcb177 image to visit their blog and soak in the  inspiration!

*  I purchased the Stampin' Up!® 2006 stamp set called Silly Sealife years ago when my son was small.  Then when I saw the Waves Of The Ocean 'patterned paper' I had to bring back this little favourite, and make my son a birthday card.   The 'birthday' sentiment is from the Stampin' Up!® 2005 stamp set called Sincere Salutations.

*  The wave is the 'metallic' for this challenge and I hope it qualifies.  Its die cut from the Blue Foils Specialty Paper, #159983 using the Waves Dies, #158840
