Challenge 189 | It's the 80's!

We are going to take a trip to the 80's which reminds me of MTV, shoulder pads and video games.  We are also going to showcase some of this decade's top colors!  Use three of the following on your card:  mauve, blue, pink, grey or tan.  Join us!

RRCB 189 

Remember to use a stamp older than a year and you must include the age (or approximate age) of the stamp in your blog post. After all – we want to give these old stamps some love!

We are excited to welcome Christy Stanford back as our guest designer!  Christy blogs at Snapdragon Stamps and has the best profile pic ever!  Christy is a talented card maker and each card is truly thought out and a work of art!  Christy definitely showed her talents with this card!  The challenge colors are a strange mix but she had no problem with them at all!  Beautifully done!  Stop by Christy's blog and leave a comment for her!

We are excited to welcome Arlene Rose as our Guest Designer!  Arlene blogs at Sundaystamper Papercrafts.  Arlene will delight your eyes with her ability to stamp and watercolor images that are so impressive they look real!  When Arlene first sent me this card, I wasn't sure what I liked best - the colors - the trees - the owls and I finally landed on the owls!  I love them!  They remind me of the owl in the old tootsie pop commercial - how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?  Spoiler alert - three!  Fun all the way around with this card and at Arlene's blog.  Be sure to stop by Sundaystamper Papercrafts and leave a comment!!
