Retro Rubber Challenge #60...Baby Critters


Time for another fun challenge with the Retro Rubber team.

I knew I had the perfect stamp set for this challenge. I bought a bunch of random stamps from a friend early last year and the Lil Hoot set by Hero Arts was in there, so I have owned it about 14 months and I think my friend had it for a couple of years before that.

I decided to use the Owl stamp, the baby Owl is so cute. I created the background using a Prima Marketing background stamp, I added a piece of scrap paper by Lawn Fawn, the pattern seemed perfect for this card.  Final steps were to mount the fussy cut Owls with foam tape onto a piece of kraft card stock and stamp the sentiment, also from the stamp set.

It's so cute, it feels like a 1st birthday card..

Your turn to show us your baby critter makes, but first pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things my teammates have made..

Challenge ends April 21st. Don't forget to tell us the age of your stamp, that is part of the fun (and the rules) of our challenge and please only enter 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.
