To pay homage to all the stamps that I have that will be retiring, I am going to make at least one new card with each of them and display them on my blog.
Now, for today's card!! For a little inspiration, I turned to two of my favorite blogs Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throw down. I love these two blogs because I can be inspired with both color and a sketch. The two retiring stamp sets I used were Vintage Vogue and Messages for Mom. I really like both of these sets and have used them plenty. The Messages for Mom has so many great sentiments, it will stay in my collection!
Thanks for checking my blog, if you have any questions, drop me a line!
To get the shading effect on the flower, I used both Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke Stampin Write Markers to color the Stamp before I stamped.
