Friday Flashback: A Beautiful Thing

It's Friiiiiiiday!  And time for this week's Friday Flashback.  The retired stamp set du jour is A Beautiful Thing from back in 2008, so let's flash back.

That little sunburst kind of design between the flowers is neat, I kinda wish I'd focused on that for the new card this week but what can ya do.

Also features For Father

 This card was a one-hit wonder for the stamp set For Father.  One of these days it'll get its own (rather short) Friday Flashback.

Also features Priceless

When I made this card, I was (temporarily) caught up with all the Splitcoast sketch and color challenges.  I'm close to catching up again :)

Also features Weathered

Last card for the flashback part of today's post; I really wish Elegant Eggplant would show up in more color challenges.  And also Garden Green.  I love both those colors but I seem to be in the minority.  (Side note:  to my delight, there are a couple of new patterned paper packs in the upcoming catalog that feature Garden Green.  Still no love for Elegant Eggplant though.)

Anywha, here's this week's new creation:

That gold embossing powder on the flowers did NOT want to show up in the photo.   Trust me, it's there!  I'm contrary enough that I like to take your stereotypical Christmas colors and make something not-Christmasy with them.   One more color challenge closer to catching up on Splitcoast!  I also used last week's sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday:

Have a great weekend!  We're going to see Godzilla tonight :D

Stamps:  A Beautiful Thing
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Versamark
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Gumball Green DSP

Wow, today's card is fantastic. I also LOVE the colors in the navy and brown card. And too, you like to use NON TRADITIONAL colors for Christmas, don't you?!!! Always the rebel, what can I say. Ha! Love you! And maybe I'll just go see Godzilla, too! After all, I'm FREE!!! Ha, ha, HA!!!
