Farewell "Betsy's Blossoms"

Happy Wednesday Everyone....
 I've been looking through all of my retiring stamp sets and taking a few out to play with before they go to new homes.  "Betsy's Blossoms" has been a favorite of mine since it premiered.  I just love the clean lines and the images are just sweet.

Here's the card I created with it today...

I made a "step" card using some of the retiring "In Colors"...Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Gumball Green and Midnight Muse.  I also added some of the retiring 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Primrose Petals too. (Item #126844).  I used a piece of Linen Thread under the bird for a little 3D "nest" kinda thing.  Thank you, Kimberly Van Diepen, for the inspiration.
I made the little bookmark on the left with two pieces of card stock and the Gumball Green piece is punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch (Item #133324).  I tell you what....that thing is worth it's weight in gold!  I love all that I can create with it.  See the two panels on the left hand side that are embossed?  I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (Item #119976).  It is also retiring.  I've used the heck out of mine.  If you haven't gotten one yet, better hurry.
To finish it off,  I added a few Basics Pearls (Item #119247) to bring it all to life. 
 I'm so happy with the way it turned out.
