Rubber Romance

Good morning all, though its not been so good here I'm afraid it was more like winter again yesterday, can't you tell it's time for Wimbledon! 
Today I want to share with you a card I made using a stamp that I have had for ages and as usual, not used before. In fact I bought the whole set of this release and have never used any!

The stamp is by Rubber Romance and if I remember correctly she is called 'Angela'
The gorgeous paper is my new 6x6 pad by Echo Park called Be Mine
The flowers, ribbon, pearls, brads and rub ons are all from my stash as is the little metal double hook thing (bet you didn't know that's what they are called!)

Thank you for stopping by to look and to those that do for commenting

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges
Stamp Something - Pretty Papers
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo
Crafty Creations  - Just Imagine

oooh love this Laurie, I love the Rubber Romance stamps, have only got couple so really need to add to the collection! I love the colours together and how you have sprinkled the flowers. I used to have a moped like this, it was blue not pink, I only had it for about 6 months, I was too nervous on the busy roads! Have a great day Pami x

Hi Laurie, Aww love this card! it reminds me of my holiday to Italy when I was in my 20's (long time ago!!!). Great image. Gorgeous papers and LOVE the colour combo and the flowers! It's really weird - I was looking at a similar 'double hook' the other day and thinking you could use it with ribbon or elastic!!! how strange! LOL The hook works really well here - perfect with those ribbons!

The sun is trying to get through today here in Manchester, but it was so cold on Saturday - just like Winter! I hope it brightens up for Wimbledon and Glastonbury. My daughter wanted to go to Glastonbury this year but it clashed with a big History Conference that she has to go to!!!
