Language of Friendship for CCMC253

Greetings, Stampers! This will be a busy week in the Stampin' Up world. On Friday a new catalog goes live, and two catalogs will retire on Friday and Monday. So I decided that I would spend this week focusing on out-with-the-old and in-with-the-new! Today's it's out-with-the-old and my project features several retiring products. To see which ones are retiring and when, see the supply list at the end of this post. 

It was love at first sight when I saw the awesome sketch this week at Create with Connie and Mary! I couldn't wait to play along, especially after seeing all the amazing samples by the design team.

The greeting and birds images are from the Language of Friendship Stamp Set, and the images in the background are from French Foliage. I sponged both the Vanilla and DSP layers with a little black ink to age them. Some ribbon, pearls and a blossom help add to the vintage feel.

Sweet card, Sandy! Love the subtle stamping behind the bird. And all of the embellishments especially the flower give it such an elegant look. So glad you joined us this week at Create with Connie and Mary.
