I was so pleased to find this Challenge Blog - Retro Rubber - especially as I am returning to some of my old beloved stamps that I haven't used in quite a long while. 

Their Challenge this week is a sketch challenge -  I found this quite daunting at first until I saw the inspiration from their Design Team and decided to think a little outside the box.

 RRCB 74

 I have gone to my Cherry Pie Art Stamps here for this card.  These stamps have to be from about 2004/5 and could be even older.  The name of this set is Mix Collage #3 and I have also used the music stamp from a set called Renaissance.

 I've used three Tim Holtz Distress Inks on the Very Vanilla paper - Antique Linen, Spiced Marmalade and Aged Mahogany.  It is layered on to Early Espresso Cardstock from SU and some jewels added onto the stars.
