On a roll!

Morning All,
Well I decided that as I was on a "sort of" vacation this week that I would make sure I had a little crafting time! As Stampin Up has just released its retirement list I knew that I wanted to use some of my favorites in the next few weeks for my projects. I, of course, needed a great sketch. So I went on over to Freshly Made Sketches and this is their great sketch:
And here is what I created:
I used one of my all time favorite background stamps, Sunflower and heat embossed it in my favorite color; pewter. I love both and am stocking up this week with SU's free shipping on the Pewter embossing powder as its my "go to" color! I ran the Coastal Cabana through my lattice folder (another retiring item that adds a great feel to projects!) and then stamped the sunflower again in Crumb Cake and placed it on a panel of Afternoon Picnic DP (also leaving us in June!). I added an antique brad and popped it up on dimensionals after heat embossing the sentiment from Loving Thoughts (another great retiring set). Loved this sketch and plan on using it again! Thanks for stopping by!

Love the Sunflower for your circle and for the popped up picture. I have to get this stamp before it retires! Thanks for sharing!
