{RETRO-FRESH CHALLENGE} with TGF

The Greeting Farm's month-long {RETRO-FRESH CHALLENGE} is up and ready for you to play along!  The Retro-Fresh challenge requires you to use a TGF stamp that is at least 6 months old, and to follow the challenge theme.
 
The theme for this month is:
 
BOYS
 
We want to see what you can create using an older BOY image.
 
 
For my card, I used cutie-patootie "HELLO IAN" rubber stamp, which just happens to be ON SALE for just $5 right now!  Go grab him while you can!  He's so sweet.  :)
 
I water colored him with Distress Inks and paper-pieced his hat with some of the same background paper.  The cute designer paper on this card is from Lawn Fawn's "Pink Lemonade" and "Daphne's Closet" Petite Paper Packs. The sentiment is from LF's "Critters On The Savanna" stamp set.
 
 
This card makes me so happy every time I look at it.  I think it's going to be a keeper! :)  I added some highlights with a white ink gel pen and dabbed some Stickles into the middle of the flower.  The background was embossed with the Tim Holtz honeycomb embossing folder.
 
Stop by the {SPLENDID STAMPING} blog today to get all of the juicy details on how to play along in the Retro-Fresh Challenge this month.  There are free TGF stamps to be won!
 
Thanks for visiting.
Luvs,
