A Fond Farewell

This is a card I did for the Stamping to Lose challenge over at! The challenge was to use one stamped image. I the used Dreams du Jour set which I stamped using Pacific Point ink. This is one of the "In-Colors" that will be retiring at the end of June. My cardstock is also all in the retiring In-Colors! I used Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point and Riding Hood Red! I love this color combo and will be sad to see these colors go.
