I went with the Regals color collection to start my week – they are perfect for Stampin' Up!'s Well Worn DSP, and then I wanted a "sketchy" image for the front to go with the Well Worn DSP, and that is where Best Friends Forever comes into play.
Maybe it is because my eyes are still only half open this Monday morning, but my Regal colors were screaming to be used. Not one to argue with my screaming colors (who knows what would happen if I did that) I grabbed my Not Quite Navy, a little Cajun Craze, a sprinkling of Very Vanilla and some accessories to make my card for you today.
To begin with, the soon-to-be-retired-&-on-sale Lace Ribbon punch did it's magic on a small strip of Very Vanilla, just a hint of it shows under a strip of Cajun Craze cardstock. Very Vanilla satin ribbon was tied around that, it goes perfectly with this card!
For the stamping, I 'stamped off' my Cajun Craze flower, it was too strong a color without doing that. (To 'stamp off' begin with inking up your stamp, stamp first on your scratch paper, then do it for real on your cardstock without reinking. You get the same color in a lighter shade!) The BFF went on in full strength in Not Quite Navy. I sprinked a little Not Quite Navy ink by way of the grid stamp in Stampin' Up!'s Best Friends Forever stamp set on the back ground NQN.

I am sad to see Stampin' Up!'s Best Friends Forever stamp set and Well Worn DSP retire – I hope that you enjoy my last card using them!
