Way To Go!

I was sad to see Boutique Borders retire - I really like the 3 stamps in this set. Anyway, for a bit of fun, I've mixed a retiring stamp, a carryover stamp and a brand new stamp on this card. 
Flower Patch is the stamp set that has carried over, and I'm loving it more this year than when it first came out.That might be because I've finally mastered stamping with photopolymer stamps, so it's much more enjoyable. It's a blessing to have the Flower Fair Framelits to cut out all the different pieces. 
The new stamp is I Think You're Great, which I received at Convention this year. I've hung onto the retired Word Bubbles Framelits for cutting out different sentiments and they seem to fit this banner greeting too. I wonder if you can see that I used the 'kissing' technique on the 'way to go'? I think it echoes the pattern of the Boutique Borders with the scallops.

Looking through the Color Throwdown design team cards, I noticed that 3 of them really picked up on the pattern in the bedcover, funny!

Cheers,
