A Happy Birthday Quilt Card
I made this birthday card using up the very last few scraps of the SU! retired Sweet Always dsp. I cut little squares, adhered them to a piece of cardstock, and then used the top note die to cut the "quilt". The sentiment is by Just-Rite stamped in Chocolate Chip ink and it's layered with Chocolate Chip and Tangerine Tango cardstocks. The orange satin ribbon was from my stash. The orange gemstones didn't pick up much shine in the photo, but IRL they look sparkly.
I recently read that SU! is retiring many current colors of card stocks and inks, while bringing back some retired colors and adding a few new ones. While I'm thrilled that some old favorites are returning, I'm just sick over all the retiring colors that I have inkpads and reinkers for and will no longer be able to buy matching card stock after July 1st! Maybe it's just me, but it's getting quite expensive to keep up with all the trends and I may have to seriously re-evaluate this "hobby" of mine!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
