Today's card uses lots of retiring products. The stamp set is the fabulous Party This Way. I am sad this is retiring - it has been my "go to" set for children's birthday cards for the past couple of years. Having said that I have used it here to make a card for my brother's 40th last weekend - so hardly a child! Luckily there are loads of new sets for me to console myself with in the new Annual Catalogue 2012/13.
The colour scheme is Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard and Cajun Craze - chosen from the Color Coach. Honestly if you don't own this then you should!
The images were stamped in Pear Pizzazz (retiring), More Mustard and Cajun Craze inks onto Confetti Cream card (retiring - so I will have to swap my allegiances to a different card). The Designer Series Paper at the bottom is from Nursery Nest (retiring). A border was punched in Cajun Craze using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. The "40" was cut from Pear Pizzazz card using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet (retiring and sold out) and popped onto a Decorative Label punch edged with More Mustard card. The "party this way" arrow and candle images were cut out using the Paper Snips and popped onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. The card front was matted onto More Mustard card and a Cajun Craze card base. I also decorated the inside but forgot to take a picture of that!
