Saying goodbye...

With the retired Stampin' Up list out this month, I thought I'd pull out some stamp sets that are leaving us.  Nothing like being retired to make me get them out to use them!  I created this card with the retiring set called Eastern Blooms.  I like this set and I'm really sad to see it go!   I also wanted to try out the Stamping 411 challenge again, so I did! LOL

Here's the sketch:


And here's my card:


So, what I used....Eastern Blooms stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, A Walk in the Park DSP (retired), silver brads, clear button, Very Vanilla seam binding, flower punch (retired), word window punch, scallop border punch.

TFL!
