It's that time of year when we have to say goodbye to some of our beloved "friends"... stamps, colors, accessories; oh, yes, you know, don't you! I chose some for this card and used the acrylic block stamping technique for the background.
Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery (both retiring) and Wild Wasabi (current) are the colors in the background which are overstamped with the Just Believe stamp (retiring) in Elegant Eggplant ink.
The card base is Wild Wasabi cardstock. "Happy Birthday", stamped in Elegant Eggplant on Certainly Celery cardstock (retiring), is from the Curly Cute set, a well-used favorite of mine, (you guessed it, retiring)!
A small Elegant Eggplant button, a touch of twine and some Basic Pearls are the finishing touches.
I love the simplicity of this card, and the fresh greens and blue tones are clean and crisp.
Thanks for looking, everyone! Hope you enjoy your weekend!
p.s. I'm not too sad... we will have lots of NEW "friends" to get acquainted with soon! : )
