Retro Rubber #96.. Get Your Sketch On!!


Welcome to another fun Retro Rubber challenge.

We have a sketch for you this time, created by me, which feels even more special this week, as it is my birthday on Friday.

As it's my birthday week, I thought a birthday card would be appropriate. And it felt like the right time to bring out a rather neglected Avery Elle set - 'Pure Magic' that I have had since it's release in 2016.

I rotated the sketch, partly because I needed to fit in the gi-normous sentiment from the Waffle Flower 'Magical' set - I bought a $20 second-hand grab bag and to my delight this set and it's dies were in the grab bag..they are worth $20 alone!

I pulled out a bunch of scrap papers and die-cut all the pieces to fit the sketch. The little piece of gold sparkly paper is from approx 2012 and there is only 1 teeny tiny piece left!

I love how this came out, the mix of patterns and the cute bunny surprisingly worked really well together.

Show us your interpretation of the sketch and pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends October 5th.

Don't forget to tell us the age of your stamp, that is part of the fun of our challenge and please only enter 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.



  1. Claire, this card is indeed MAGICAL, love it, adorable and super cute, that little circle with the golden dots is the perfect background for your sweet little bunny, to bad this DSP is almost gone.
    Awesome card, fabulous for kids of all ages.

  2. Such a fun birthday card, my friend! You turned the sketch in the direction I wanted to but ended up keeping it in the original form. Your magical bunny just makes me happy - just like all your cards do! Wonderful in every way!!

  3. Thanks for giving us such a great sketch to work with this week, Claire. I think your magical themed birthday card is fabulous, what with the rabbit in a hat and the sparkly gold paper. It's a card anyone would love to receive.

  4. Super fun card Claire. Love your take on the sketch with your layers and layout.
