Saying goodbye to some favorites this week!

I will be spending the next four days, until the end of June, posting projects made with some of my favorite retiring stamp sets and accessories.  If you see something you like, hurry up, because time is running out to purchase products from the 2010-11 Idea Book and Catalog.

Today's card was made with retiring stamp set A Flower For All Seasons.  It is a really cute set featuring four stamps that I used often for get well, thank you, and thinking of you cards.  I kept today's card simple by embossing the front with the Framed Tulips folder, and highlighting my stamped image by sponging a circle of Baja Breeze ink.  To create the template for the reverse mask, I punched a circle in a scrap piece of cardstock using the 2 1/2" circle punch, and sponged the ink inside. 

The following were used for today's card:
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla #101650
Stamp Set:  A Flower For All Seasons #111592 and Fresh Cut Notes #111634 - both retiring
Ink:  Early Espresso #119670, Baja Breeze #111833
Accessories:  Stamping Sponges #101610, Big Shot #113439. Framed Tulips Embossing Folder #121809
