Retro Rubber Challenge

Here is my card for the Retro Rubber Challenge.  You may have noticed that I enjoy making collage cards, or at least, "collage looking" cards.

The Stampin' Up! stamp set "Postage Due" does the collage work for you.  This stamp set was introduced in the 2012 SU catalog.

I am not sure but I think this DSP was called Watercolor Wonder.
The polka dot DSP might be from a different collection, but it matched so I used it.  I put the dotted strip on the hombre looking dsp before I stamped the image in black ink, over both layers of paper.

Then I stamped the image again in Tangerine Tango on the dsp and punched it out with the 2 3/8 circle scallop punch.  I took a white circle scallop and placed it under the original stamped scallop to give it a little dimension.  

 I stamped two of the postage stamps from the stamp set in Tangerine Tango on the dsp, punched with the Postage Stamp punch and added them to the front.

Finally, the tiny happy birthday sentiment is from SU Happy Moments (2010 Sale-a Bration) and one I use ALL the time.  I love that lower case tiny font.
