Retired list and a few favorites!

Hello!  Today is the big day!  The Stampin Up! Retirement list comes out!!  This is always such a bittersweet time!  I hate to see some of my very favorites going, but they always bring in so many fun new wonderful things it is hard to keep pouting for long! :)  If you haven't seen the list yet you can find it here.  Lots of things are discounted! Wooo hoooo!  Also, keep in mind that the accessories are while supplies last!

In honor of the list making it's debut today I pulled out a couple of the sets that are saying farewell to make a card.  

I used Summer Solstice and You are Loved for this one. I used the masking technique to stamp the leaves 'behind' the flower.

I added some banners and pearls to dress everything up.  The background was run through the HoneyComb EF.

I think the butterfly, circle banner and banner create kind of a triangle that your eye follows!  That worked out pretty darn well! :)  I really do hate to see these gems go, but am soooooo excited to see what the new catalog will have in it!!

Hope your week is going well!  I will be back soonest with more to share!  Have a great day!

Very pretty card! I was quite sad when I saw all of the retiring stamps, so many favorites! Needless to say, I will be hanging on to most of them anyway!
