OOPS… with all the hub-bub about the retired accessories list, I got my posts a bit out of order. Today’s card should have been posted yesterday as part of the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge SQSC36! Sorry for any confusion it may have caused!Today’s challenge card features the Four Frames and Happiness Shared Stamp Sets, which go together quite surprisingly well! Paired with Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper and Rich Razzleberry/Whisper White card stock, it’s got a very Clean and Simple (CAS) Wow factor too!
The pretty rose from Happiness Shared was stamped (like everything else) using rich razzleberry classic ink, and punched using the large oval punch. The petals, leaves and stems were colored using pear pizzazz and Pretty in Pink markers.
I couldn’t help it… the card just needed a little bling!! Mis-matched rhinestones along the upper right edge of the card are a bit dwarfed by the business of the DSP though.
But the rhinestones work well with the ‘for you’ simple sentiment which is attached to the card front with a stampin’ dimensional aka “pop dot”.
Have you seen the retired accessories list? LOL it’s a whopping 12 pages long!! I was going to add it to my blog post but… 12 pages, IDK!! You can view the complete retired accessories list 2012 online… HERE.
Items on the retired accessories list are available on a first come first serve basis so visit my online stampin’ up! store to place your order and ensure your items are still in stock!
The finishing touch… a pretty organza ribbon knot across the front of the card!
