Retro Happy Birthday for the Retro Rubber Groovy Baby Challenge

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by the Retro Rubber - Groovy Baby Challenge #179.  Please click on either my card or the #rrcb179 image to visit their blog.  The Retro Rubber Challenge encourages us to give our old stamps some love and this challenge is to be inspired by the 60's.  I hope my card inspires you to create a card, either with an old fav or a current stamp - just get stamping, have fun and make it Groovy Baby!

Assembly & Trix

*  The card layout is inspired by Mary's Stampin' Pretty tutorial.  Please click here to see the Step-By-Step Tutorial on her website.   

*  The brightly coloured background was created with the little flower burst from Baroque Motifs 2007 stamp set using Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape & (retiring) Magenta Madness.   

*  The 'Happy Birthday' wood mount stamp is called Stylized Birthday from Stampin' Up!®, I'm not sure the age of it, any guesses?  

* I changed up the ribbon detail to use the wider Magenta Madness because I thought the loop flowed with the loops on the font.  ***Trix, tie the ribbon loop with twine, and then adhere to the back of the fussy cut Happy Birthday before adhering to the die cut circle.   It helps to keep it flowy - is that word? :)

*  The current products I used are the  'From All Of Us' sentiment from the Party Puffins stamp set, #155054 & the Layering Circles dies, #151770.
