SULateNightStampers Challenge/Stamping 411 Sketch

Well good day to all of you! I sure hope your week has started out well.  I have a very busy week ahead of me, so I knew if I did not get this posted today, I would miss it. 

So our challenge for this week at SULateNightStampers is "Sorry to see you go!"  So we are to take our favorite stamps that will be retiring at the end of the month and use them.  And, I can honestly say that I am almost crying knowing that "Upsy Daisy" will be leaving us.  This is such a versatile stamp and can be used for so many reasons. But I did not stop at the stamp set.  The colors that I used here are also retiring except of course the Whisper White. 

My card layout was inspired by the Stamping 411 Sketch this week.  Here is another angle or view of the card!  Also the lighting was a little better from this angle! You can see more of the vibrant colors.

And now for the inside.  I may use another sentiment on the inside, but for now I will leave it blank other than the stamping of the daisy's!

Items used are all Stampin' Up!
Stamp Set: Upsy Daisy
Card Stock: Pear Pizzazz, Poppy Parade, Concord Crush, Whisper White
Classic Ink: Concord Crush, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz
Old Olive 1 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint mixed to spritz (can see it more in the first photo)

Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderful week!

What a great challenge! You shouldn't be sad though, Jonia, you have the stamp! :o) It's those of us that DON'T have it yet that are supposed to be crying, isn't it? lol There are way too many on my list that will be retiring for me to even make a dent in said list! So I'm glad I can continue to see some of them here with you! If that makes any sense at all! lol :o)
