Yeah, the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set is not retiring. But, unfortunately the Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper and the Stripes Embossing Paper used will only be available until June 1st. Oh, well, with some of my favorites retiring that means there will be great new items ahead with the new Catalog which comes out in June.
My card base is So Saffron Card Stock, with a layer of Very Vanilla that I embossed with the Stripes Embossing Folder. I then cut some Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper with my Big Shot and a Banners Framelits Die. I added my Happy Birthday that was punched out with the 1 3/8" Circle punch, and added some Candy Dots to the bottom for some more embellishment.
The following were used:
Card Stock: So Saffron #105118, Very Vanilla #101650

Later today I am going to a Catalog Launch Party in Hanover, Maryland. It is a three hour drive, but feel it is so worth it to get my hands on the new Catalog as soon as possible, as well as get together with other Demonstrators to learn about new products and be with others who are as excited about this as I am. I can't wait to share what some of the new products will be, and look forward to creating and learning new things together.
