Retiring Rose

Mornin', peeps!  I'm still getting my mojo back together after almost a week of not being crafty, but I think I'm getting there.  This morning, I made this card:

I am continuing to love on my retiring stamps and accessories a bit--I used two retiring stamp sets, a retiring embossing folder, retiring Framelits, retiring patterned paper, and retiring ink.  That's a lot of retirement :) The white panel is popped up from the card base, and the rose is popped up from the white panel, so this card is extra-dimensional.  Just thought I'd let you know since you can't see it in the photo.

I used the color challenge from Colour Me...!

Usually I am not over fond of color challenges that feature one color and neutrals, but for some reason I am totally in love with Crisp Cantaloupe (or Calypso Coral for that matter) and Sahara Sand.  So I had to play along with this one.  I hope the challenge hostesses over there won't give me demerits for using some Calypso Coral ink on the's a Dynamic Duo with Crisp Cantaloupe, so really it's like the same color but a darker shade.  And I needed some darker shade for my rose :)

I also used this week's fantastic Freshly Made Sketch:

I think I play along over there almost every single week.  And this week I stuck VERY close to the sketch, lemme pat myself on the back for that :D

Well, since my Skype date bailed on me today (I still love you, Missy) guess that means I can go right back into the crafting cave and make something else.  Cheers, peeps!
