a blog named hero . . .

currently has as a challenge to use a golden oldie stamp. 


Here is my card:



This Hero Arts sentiment may still be for sale but it has been in my arsenal since the late '90's!  Today one of my friends and I had a luncheon for another friend's birthday and this is the card I made for her. 

I used a Brilliance peacock pad for the background and Brilliance pearlescent jade for the sentiment.  I am still in love with these beautiful inkpads!  The patterned paper is from the Basic Gray paper cottage 6 x 6 pad.

Have a great day!

Joy, I remember that sentiment stamp! It is fun to play with our older stamps again, isn't it? (I have so many, not sure what to use!) This is a lovely birthday card, such pretty colors. Still some great stamps to have in your stash, for sure!

This is such a lovely card. I love how you inked the bg stamp and embelished the sentiment panel with flowers. Thanks for joining us at A Blog Named Hero.

I'd say that this is still "cutting edge", Joy. Love the feminine look. Great card for a party.
