Baltimore, baby!

If you are seeing this post on Saturday, then I am in Baltimore, MD at my first ever Stampin’ Up! corporate event!  I’m so excited to be going.

One of the things people do at these events is swaps.  So I made the following card for my swap.  I made this as a tribute too, to some colors that will be moving out of the way to make room for newer colors to return.    thank you with rolled roses

The background is a layer of Bashful Blue cardstock with a layer of Whisper White which was stamped in Bashful Blue with the En Francis background stamp.  An oval of Basic Gray provided a good contrast to hold the Bashful Blue shape which was stamped in Basic Gray with a sentiment from Perfectly Penned.

The leaves are actually punched out from Certainly Celery using the build-a-bird punch.  The Pretty in Pink flowers started life as a scallop circle punch and after some cutting, rolling & gluing, were transformed into these roses.

An assembly of line was formed to create the multiple cards needed for the card swap.  My dear hubby helped by doing all the punching for me!

As you can see, alot of scallop circles needed to be punched out!  Thanks, hubby!

You can see the stack o’ scallops and the roses all finished.  I love the color combo of Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink.  Since these 3 colors will be retiring, this card is also a tribute to the colors.
