RS #46



I love this week's RetroSketch, I think that is why I had to wait to the last minute to part with it.  I had so many ideas floating around in my head and I couldn't quite figure out what I wanted to do.  I also wanted to do this week's challenge over at A Blog Named Hero.  This week we were to grab our oldest Hero Arts stamp if we could to create a new card.  I am not sure that this is my oldest Hero Arts stamp, but it is definitely my oldest non Christmas stamp and also a stamp that has probably only been inked once.








Cardstock:  White, Pure Poppy (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned paper: Pure Poppy Patterned Paper Pack (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Hearts Flourish (Hero Arts) Tiny Tags (Papertrey Ink)
Ink:  Pure Poppy (Papertrey Ink)
Dies: Hearts Border (Papertrey Ink)
other: Paisley embossing folder (Provo Craft), foam tape, tiny button brad

This is just gorgeous. I love how that swirly image goes across the panel, your little tag, the patterned paper behind it all, and that paisley embossing folder. This card has it all. Looks like you just squeaked it in, too.
