8/28 Victorian Note of Thanks

Some of my friends tease me about all the stamp sets that I have. I honestly don't know how many I have, but it's a lot. I "collect" them. Once in a great while I'll sell an old set . . . but most times I just unmount them and keep them.

Does anyone recognize the old set I used on this card? It's from a stamp set that debuted way back in 1999 called Victorian Frame. I think it is so much fun to mix old and new and if you strolled through my house you would see exactly that in every single room of my home. So, why should my cards be any different?? lol!

How was I inspired? By Kristina Warner, of course!! I missed a color challenge a week or so ago and I saw so many inspiring samples using Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White and a spritz of color that I had to play, too!

On the right is a picture of the inspiration piece. You can go directly to Kristina's blog HERE to read all about the challenge. For my little spritz of color, I picked Kiwi Kiss - my favorite "In" color.

Supplies I used to create this card:

Stamps: Victorian Frame, Elegant Notes, Thank You Kindly Paper: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Glossy White Ink: Basic Black Accessories: 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Big Shot Bigz XL Pennant Die, 2 1/2" Marvy Circle Punch, Word Window Punch, Dimensionals

Kay, this is just stunning, and that background stamp is awesome! It debuted before my SU days, but it's certainly a keeper! Gorgeous colours, beautiful card!
