My card today is for the challenges at retro sketches and The Paper Players.
Baja Breeze is retiring at the end of this catalog year and I didn't really think I would miss it too much until I actually got it out to use it! It is a nice calm light blue. It has kind of a "dirty" look to it too, which I like for vintage or old-world style cards. I haven't used it in a while and it kind of got me teary just thinking about it leaving. What a color-addicted dork! lol
I haven't really used Friendship Preserves all that much but I thought it worked well with the sketch and colors. It stamps so nicely when colored with markers too! For my flowers at the top I first pressed them into my Baja Breeze ink pad and then Rich Razzleberry. I love adding color to these flowers. They are so gorgeous! I really hope they carry over into the next catalog. It is nice that they are all joined so you can use a strip of them or cut them apart. The twine at the bottom is a strip I cut from the Natural Cotton ribbon and pulled the fibers apart. I used some on another card earlier this week and had this extra lying on my table and thought it looked to nice to throw it away. :)
