Eastern Blooms

So, I pulled out an old set from my retired bin and made this card.  The stamp set used is Eastern Blooms and is retired.  This was one of the first sets I bought as a demonstrator and I forgot how fun it was to use and what great cards it makes.

I completed two challenges:
Color Throwdown to use Lovely Lilac (retired color), So Saffron, & Certainly Celery
Freshly Made Sketches

Lovely Lilac is a color I rarely used when it was current, so, of course I have TONS of it left!  I was thankful for this week's Color Throwdown so I could use up a little bit of it.

The branch image is colored with Stampin' Write Markers.  The main flowers are stamped on Whisper White, then cut out and mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals (of course, you know how I love dimensionals).

Supplies List
Paper: Lovely Lilac (retired), Early Espresso, Certainly Celery, Whisper White, Tea Party DP (retired)
Ink: Lovely Lilac (retired), So Saffron
Stamps: Eastern Blooms (retired)
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Stampin' Dimensionals, Basic Rhinestones, Circle Nestabilities, Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker, So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker, Lovely Lilac Stampin' Write Marker (retired)

Thanks for stopping by!
