Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challeng #290: Lovely Inside and Out

Good morning!  Today it's time for a color challenge over on the Hand Stamped Sentiments blog and we're mixing a retiring color (Marina Mist) with some classics that are carrying forward.  I decided to use today's card to show some fun products that are retiring along with the colors to make sure you have these in your stampin' stash for future projects.

I started with Old Olive cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Marina Mist cardstock as a mat for the cardfront that is a piece of designer series paper from the Eastern Palace Speciality Designer Series Paper (retiring).  I used one of the stamps from the Lovely Inside and Out (retiring) to stamp the dots on the bottom corner of the DSP using Rich Razzleberry ink.

Next I took a piece of Gold Foil cardstock and used the Big Shot and Layering Ovals Framelits and Lovely Words Thinlits Dies (retiring) to cut the friend image and used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach the piece to the cardfront. 

To finish of the greeting I stamped the words, also using the Lovely Inside and Out (retiring) to stamp the "for a great" on Marina Mist cardstock and then punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.  I sponged around the edges before attaching to the cardfront.  The final touch on the card is a double bow tied with Old Olive Baker's Twine (retiring).

This a nice and mailable card that is perfect to let a know you're just thinking of them when there's no special occasion, and don't we all love those?  Make sure to check out the other cards the design team is sharing using this color combo and then we would love for you to play along with us and share what you create.
