Celebrate Today

Today we're celebrating Perfectly Penned (sniffle!) and En Francais, which are both on the retiring list.


Actually, the Flower Shop bundle (stamp set plus matching punch) is on the list too, but only because they won't be available bundled together in the new catalog; you'll still be able to get them separately.  That larger flower punch is retiring altogether, though.

I used the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary for my card:


Looks like I missed a layer.  Oops.  This card also counts for the SUO Challenge to use flowers, no cheating on that one : )  I also used the new color challenge from ColourQ:


There should be more color challenges with Elegant Eggplant.  And also Garden Green, because it's my favorite green but it's never on color challenges (or DSP) so I'm kinda scared that SU! is going to retire it and I'm still sad that Baja Breeze is gone.  Problems, y'all.

Thanks for stopping by today and cheers, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Perfectly Penned, Flower Shop, En Francais
Ink:  Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Paper:  Pear Pizzazz, Elegant Eggplant, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Accessories:  Fancy Flower punch (retiring), Pansy punch (not retiring), Hexagon punch (to do the end of the banner, also not retiring), linen thread, retired Elegant Eggplant button

Hi Christy! I'm sad along with you because these sets and punch are retiring. :( But you have used them in such a lovely manner on your card; love the double flower. Thanks for joining us for the sketch challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary!
