Using Up Discontinued Colors

Have you heard about Stampin' Up!'s Color Refresh?  I'm really excited to see some changes although I admit I'm really going to miss Baja Breeze.  But, new colors mean new accessories, patterned paper, etc.!  It's a really fun time of year to be part of Stampin' Up!

Below is a chart showing the changes in the Color Refresh.  I'm really happy to see Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz making a return (as well as the others).  Plus, we'll also have 5 new In-Colors with the new catalog!

So, on to the card.  I hate to hoard (but I do), so my goal is to use my discontinued colors to make way for new stuff!  Don't you just love the center of those flowers?  I made them using the new A Round Array stamp set that's part of the Spring Surprise Bundle.  The bundle includes the stamp set and coordinating punch at 15% off.  You can see that the stamp set and punch work beautifully with the Blossom Punch.

Plus, for 3 days only....April get FREE SHIPPING
on everything.  Yes, FREE SHIPPING!

Another good reason to take advantage of the FREE SHIPPING is that the discontinued colors are only available while supplies last.  Order your favorite accessories, card stock and ink pads now.  Plus, don't forget to order ink refills!

So, here's everything I used for the card:
