Retro Rubber Challenge #186 - Sketch Challenge...


Welcome to another fun Retro Rubber challenge. I hope you all had a fun 4th of July weekend if you are in the Americas, Hubby and I had a great weekend.

We have a sketch for you this time, you know how much I love a sketch!

I rotated the sketch and decided to use this gorgeous butterfly that was on my desk, it's by Clearly Besotted 'Elegant Butterflies' and I have had it since 2016.

I loved the colour I had stamped it in, so I chose papers that worked well with it and suited the sketch.

Here is a close-up, as the sentiment strip is foiled and is hard to photograph!

The floral paper is by Stampin' Up and everything else is a scrap, the sentiment strip is by Taylored Expressions. I love how pretty and delicate this card feels.

Show us your interpretation of the sketch. And don't forget to pop on over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends July 15th.

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. This is just so sweet, Claire - a perfect and lovely little butterfly! Your papers choices are spot on!

  2. This is a quiet beauty Claire! The papers, the colors, the sweet butterfly. It definitely feels delicate and oh so elegant!

  3. Well, I think this might be the prettiest card I've seen you ever make, Claire! I LOVE IT! Those papers are beautiful as is that gorgeous butterfly!


  4. Such a beauty Claire! I love the DSP you used and the butterfly looks wonderful anchored in the right angle like that. I have that Clearly Besotted set and I think it's due for a visit - thanks for the inspiration! Also, thanks so much for having me guest with you this challenge. Vicky x
