Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge Featuring Retro Girl 1

Happy Tuesday Blogger Friends!  Hope Everyone is having a fantastic start to their weeks.  My week is already starting out a little crazy both at work and at home and there's more to come this week too! I just hope I can survive it! I'd better get myself some energy drinks to keep up! LOL  We've also had some pretty hot weather and I'm hoping there will be no more fires for us!  I am looking forward to the summer and especially going to the beach. I just love the beach and it is a perfect getaway from all the stresses in life. If I can't make it to the beach, another good getaway is hiding out in my craft room making projects!  Fortunately, I did have some time to do just that and wanted to share what I created with all of you for this challenge!

Before I share my card, I wanted to let you know that are wonderful sponsor is Birdie Brown!!!

The theme for this week is "May Flowers".
And here is my card...

So I was really happy about having this challenge.  I love using flowers on all of my projects and so this was just perfect for me.  The image I used is the adorable "Retro Girl 1" by Birdie Brown.  There are 2 other "Retro Girls" and they are all so super cute!  I had fun coloring up this cute girl with my copic markers.  The design papers I used are from a collection called Cashmere Dame by Glitz!  This set of design papers are is so pretty.  Using the DP, I handmade a banner which  I stamped my sentiment "Smile" on  it with Memento ink in Black Tuxedo.  I  edged my papers using my Tim Holtz distress ink in Pumice Stone.   I have a doily you can barely see peeking out behind the flowers. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I sprayed them up using my Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold to give them some shimmer. For my other embellishments, I  added some red rhinestones from Recollections, a brown nylon butterfly and a white pearl string from my stash. 

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store.
