Retiring Colours

Hi guys,

I decided to make a card specifically for the JAI challenge this week. I have another great idea floating around up there which I hope to get done before cut off. I decided to use some of our retiring colours to make this card. Not only to use them before they go but to really celebrate how good some of the retiring colours are. I also decided to case a card from the current IB&C! I absolutly love the sweet card on page 8 of the catty. Here's my more boy-ish version of the card

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Ink: Apricot Appeal
Cardstock: Apricot Appeal, Ruby Red, Brocade Blue, Whisper White
Accesories: Apricot Appeal and Brocade Blue Prints DSP pack, Scallop Egde Punch, Brocade Blue brads, Dimensionals, Polka Dot Folder, Big Shot

It's funny the last few cards I've made for JAI challenges have been alot more simple cards then I usually do. This is a fun card and would be great again for a make and take or a SAS. When I stamped the happy birthday sentiment I originally used my SAMJ and then thought no it'd look quirkier freehand so I stamped free hand instead. I like this look alot better. I don't think everything needs to be 100% perfect all the time to look great.

Thanks for looking,
Have a great evening! I'm off to watch my new favourite show, True Blood!

So cute! I like how you've stamped the sentiment along the scallop. :-)
