Friday Flashback: Apple Blossoms

Welcome to another Friday Flashback!  Today's randomly chosen retired stamp set is Apple Blossoms, which was a hostess set a couple years ago (2010-2011, according to SCS...I didn't think it was that long ago!).  I really liked it in the catalog, but didn't get it until right before it retired...and then I wasn't sure what to do with it, so it's been gathering dust since then.  Does that ever happen to anyone else?

Anyway, since I drew this stamp set for today's Flashback, I had to make something with it.  Apparently I'm still stuck on reds and pinks from Valentine's Day...

I thought those bold flowers needed some bold colors, so I went with RED.  And isn't that a fun greeting for a card?  I think my Gumball Green ink pad needs refreshing though.  I rounded one corner of the Blushing Bride layer just because it seemed to need a little something extra.

I also used this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches:

I do love a triptych sketch.

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great weekend!

I love your background stamping with those pretty flowers and colours Christy! See I can't remember that set so I thought it might've been about 5 yrs old! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
