I made this card for my father for Father's Day... (actually early this year!)... The branches are from the Embrace Life set that will be retiring the end of this month. We will also have to say good-bye to the Close to Cocoa and Bordering blue colors... so pretty together! Thankfully, Kraft (background of card front) will be returning as Crumb Cake in the color renovation. Also retiring are the corduroy buttons... I used Chocolate Chip on this card.

Ink: Close to Cocoa
Stamps: Embrace Life (114958), Well Scripted (retired)
Other: Chocolate Chip corduroy buttons (114339), corner rounder (109047)
















I used retiring colors Green Galore, Pink Passion, Only Orange, Lovely Lilac, and Yoyo yellow on this card. The Happy Everything stamp set and Flower trio punch is also retiring...

Supplies:
Cardstock: Green Galore, Gable Green, Pink Passion, Only Orange, Lovely Lilac, Yoyo yellow, Black
Stamp set: Happy Everything (115235)
Ink: Versamark

  173. Thanks so much for the chance to win some great blog candy and for being in the blog-hop. I'm loving all these new creative blogs I'm discovering!

    My favorite Designer Series Paper offered in the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog is Nouveau Chic.

  174. My favorite DSP is Merry Moments. It was actually the first DSP and last DSP I've bought from SU. I started last year with the Holiday Mini and my friends and I are holding a Christmas in July open house next month and we decided to use the DSP to show case some items.
