Fab Friday Color Challenge: Suite Sentiments (A Continued Salute to Retiring Favorites)

Good morning!  I spent the weekend separating all of the retiring items from the current and are continuing to enjoy them while we can.  Today I decided to play along with this weeks Fab Friday color challenge and it's another salute to retiring favorites, with almost everything used on the retiring list (oh no, so sad!)

I started with Pool Party cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper (retiring)  (I can't believe I haven't really used this paper before now, it has some great prints).  I added some old olive splatter directly to the DSP using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (retiring) saying goodbye to this stamp set is devastating and I have no intention of letting go of it.

Next I took a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and cut it out with the Big Shot and Lots of Labels Framelits and then embossed it with the Falling Petals Embossing Folder (retiring).

The decorative piece for the greeting is from the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishments kit (retiring) and is gold foil embossed, love it!  The greeting is from the Suite Sentiments stamp set (retiring) and was stamped in Old Olive ink before being attached to the cardfront with dimensionals.  I wanted to add a little pizazz to the card so I took one of the Pool Party bows (also from the embellishments kit) and attached it and then added a Calypso Coral Enamel Dot (from the Subtles Enamel Shapes pack).

This was a lot of different colors to play with all together but they do work well together and I like the little mix of gold to dress it up.  Who wouldn't want to receive this card to help celebrate their special day?
