Color Throwdown #556

Hey there! I'm super happy to be The Guest Star Stamper for the challenge at Color Throwdown today. The talented stampers in this group provide a new color combo and wonderful inspiration for using it each week. I love playing along! Here's this week's challenge.

I was completely taken with the soft nubby look of the fabric and embroidery on the pale green bag. I went looking for stamps to use and came up with an oldie but goodie set, Fresh Cut Florals and paired it up with the fresh new sentiments from Butterfly Mandala (both from WPlus9).

Adding a vertical strip of kraft paper adorned with gold stripes gave a hint of elegance. I carried this over by embossing the sentiment in gold and adding three dots with gold embossing at the bottom of the card. Just a bit of shimmer pen was added to the sentiment for sparkle.

I really enjoyed using an older set made fresh with newer elements. It feels good using what I have and giving the retro stamps some love. They will always be in style!

Thanks to the team at Color Throwdown for a great combo. Make sure to check their site to see the array of beautiful projects.

And lucky me, it's Anything Goes week so I can add this to the Retro Rubber Challenge. I got Fresh Cut Florals in 2013.
