Flashback Friday

As a Stampin' Up Demo, and my own best customer, I love getting new things. There is nothing like Mr. Brown arriving with those fantastic cardboard boxes full of goodies! Each new edition of the SU! catty sparks a Wish List a mile long, accompanied by a deep sigh from my hubby. With the arrival of new stamp sets, the oldies but goodies get pushed deeper and deeper back in my shelves, rarely to be inked again. Well, I've decided to dig out some of those older, retired sets and give them another look. So each Friday, I will post a "Flashback Friday" card, created with random retired SU! items, be it stamps, colors of paper and ink, or accessories. I encourage all of you to take a look at some of the items you own and haven't used in a long time.... rekindle that love you once had and make it new again! You can even post a link to your creations in the comments section to share your inspiration. So, here is the first edition of "Flashback Friday"....
I stamped a couple extra flowers, colored them in, cut them out and "popped" them up just to add a little dimension to the card.
Supplies:
"Oh So Lovely" stamp set, Hostess Level 1 from SU! 2007 Fall/Winter Catalog
"Hugs and Wishes" stamp set
Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black cardstock
Watercolor paper
Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi classic inks
Aqua Painter
Stampin Dimensionals
double-stitched black grosgrain ribbon (non-SU!)
