I have many great retired and non-retired stamp sets that I have collected but have not played with much or even at all. (Yes, I am a stamp hoarder. There, I admitted it!) This is one that I have used once, maybe twice before. I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and picked the paper colors from that, which are colors in the current ColourQ Challenge #145. I used last weeks SCS Sketch Challenge 392. The doily in the background is a Cricut cut out. The frame for the image was dry embossed and then sponged with matching ink. I left the sentiment off to keep it generic for whenever I may need a card for any given occasion. The last generic card I made I used for a sympathy card a few days later. I hope that will not be this one's fate.
Below is a picture of the SN colors I used.
