Just For Fun June Challenge - 50's Flash Back



If you are looking for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Reveal Blog Hop, scroll down or click here.





June is here and it is time for a new challenge at  



This month our theme is 50's Flash Back.  How fun is that!!   

 We also have an optional sketch that you can use.

Remember that the challenge rules have also been changed so you no longer are required to use a JFF stamp on your project to win the monthly gift certificate, but if you do use a JFF stamp you will receive a 2nd entry in the drawing, doubling your chance to win.


My hubby is an antique car buff and was born in the 50’s so this is the perfect theme for his upcoming birthday.  I started this card by stamping the background with JFF’s Circles Background.  I colored in a few of the circles with red and layered on black and red.


I stamped and fussy cut three 45 RPM record images and arranged these on the front.  The Diner and '57 Chevy were stamped in black and fussy cut.  I added a little splash of red and some grey shading to each and layered them on top of the records.


The sentiment, Good Times, was stamped in red Memento ink, layered on black, and added across the top.  Then I added the Fuzzy Dice, hanging them from the sentiment with some fiber.

My hubby will really enjoy this card.  Just for your info, my hubby and I have the same birthday – wonder what he will make me?

Don’t forget to visit the JFF blog to get full details and rules for the challenge, along with some great inspiration from my fellow designers.
