It's been a while since I've made a card for the Retro Rubber Challenge.  I loved the sketch for this challenge.  I decided to do black, gray and white with just a pop of Strawberry Slush.  I seem to neglect my Jar of Love stamp set so I pulled it off the shelf and got busy.  It also fits the year or older stamp set requirement of the challenge as it's from the 2016-17 Annual Catalog.  I rather like the way this turned out.

Stamp Set:  Jar of Love (Stampin' Up!)
Inks:  Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Strawberry Slush, Sahara Sand (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock:  Oreo, Sugar Cube (Taylored Expressions)
Dies:  Stitched Oval Stacklets (Taylored Expressions); Everyday Jars Framelits (Stampin' Up!)
Other:  1" White Nylon Ribbon (May Arts); Whisper White Embossing Powder, Pearl Basic Jewels (Stampin' Up!)

Today's card was made using the sketch from the Retro Rubber Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
