SUO Challenge: Favorite Retiring Set

We have a new challenge at SUO Challenges, starting today! The challenge theme is your favorite retiring stamp set. Be sure to join us for some fun!

When the retiring list came out, I was fearful for the stamps sets I would be giving up (of course if I love it, I hold onto it, but I don't have room to keep everything!). Fortunately my stamp collection didn't take to hard of a hit. Aviary is one of my favorite sets that will be retiring.

The card I made, today, for the SUO Challenge blog, features Aviary, but also contains several other retiring products; A Word for You stamp set, the Lucky Limeade card stock (my favorite green!), and the International Bazaar DSP!

Although I'm sad to see these go, I'm looking forward to refreshing my collection!

It may be hard to tell from this photo, but  the small bird cage is hand cut and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I also separated the Whisper White layers with Dimensionals.

Make sure you check out the retiring lists, so you don't miss out on those items you always wanted!
