Soft Thank You for Two Challenges

This card uses some retiring products. And it's also for two challenges. First, I used the PPA Challenge#252 here. And second, the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge#356 here. This one's a color challenge to use Blackberry Bliss, Soft Sky and Smoky Slate. The two stamp sets are retiring and they're Mixed Bunch and Lots of Thanks. Moonlight DSP Stack will be gone and so will the Blossom punch.

Here's my recipe:
Stamps: Mixed Bunch and Lots of Thanks
Papers: WW, Smoky Slate, Moonlight DSP Stack
Inks: Smoky Slate, Blackberry Bliss and Soft Sky
Accessories: 3/4 inch and 1 inch Circle punches, Blossom punch, Stampin dimensionals

How pretty and soft this is with so much Smoky Slate! That was a great way to go with these colors! I also love how you wove the greeting banner above and below the flower centers! Thank you for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!

I love your use of Smoky Slate as the main colour - I will be sad to see this stamp set retire for sure. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!

Great little card showcasing a fun retiring set! Love how you placed your greeting like a banner over the flowers.

I am so sorry I am late with my comments for this challenge! Graduation happened and we had lots of company that stayed into the week after graduation. There was just no time at my computer! Thanks for playing the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge!
