I made my card a week ago - before the Retiring/Last Chance List was revealed and I had a feeling that my beloved Stippled Blossoms stamp set would be retiring. I was right. Little did I know that the Fancy Fan embossing folder would be retiring too!
Oh, and the Subtles Designer Series Paper stack is also retiring. This stack of 12 x 12 patterned paper is where the piece of Soft Sky paper on my card is from.
I did a lot of fussy cutting on my card - as in every flower and leaf - and the Basic Gray centers are fussy cut too. I also sponged the edges of the flowers, especially the roses, so they would show up better against the white card stock. Once I had everything cut, I just cascaded them down the side.
Now, I made my card a Mother's Day card, but it could easily be made into whatever you need it to be :)
