Good Monday morning dear friends and hope your weekend was wonderful. Time passes so fast and when you stay busy as I have these past few weekends it passes even faster, so Monday is just to soon for me. But on to our challenges this week. Yes, once again I combined the Late Night Stampers Challenge with the Monday Lunch Time Sketch at Techno Stamper's blog. Our Late Night Stampers challenge is to use "Your Favorite Retiring Colors" from SU! I love so many of them, but I must say I will miss Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze and Regal Rose. So those are the colors I chose to use on this card. And, I am so happy with the outcome.
For the flower, I actually stamped my stamp with versarmark and then stamped it in Regal Rose then onto the Pretty in Pink Card stock. I embossed it with clear embossing powder to help it stand out better and to put the two colors together. Then using the Secret Garden Framelits, I cut the flower out. So very easy. Of course the leaf is part of the framelits also. I did the embossing for the Happy Birthday the same way, by stamping in the versarmark and then the Baja Breeze ink using the clear embossing powder to highlight the sentiment. The designer papers are from an old 6X6 paper pack that was a hostess gift years ago and was the only thing I could find in the regal rose. But it worked beautifully. I used the front and the back of the designer paper. Added a few of the butterflies using the Beautiful Wings embosslit folder and the Baja Breeze card stock.
