SugarPea Designs~ Flashback Friday!

Hello again! I am over on the SugarPea Design blog today sharing a card for a new feature called "Flashback Friday". This is where we will showcase a card by one of the designers and or customer or sometimes even both, using a stamp set that was release last year.
Fun Right !?
For my flashback card, I went with one of the first ever released stamp sets called, "Go-Pher It". This is one of the first ever stamp sets I ever purchased from the SugarPea Shop and is what always kept me coming back for more.
I colored him up using my Spectrum Noirs.

For the colorful side of card with hexagon pattern, I cut my paper in 1" strips and then layered them at an angle to give more dimension and texture.
Would you like a chance to WIN a $10 gift certificate to our online shoppe?
Simple create a NEW card with an OLD set and by old I simply mean something that is NOT from our most recent release that is featured on the home page of the store.  Link up your creation over at the SugarPea Design Blog.  The winner will be announced next month when we do our next Flashback Friday post so you have plenty of time to get crafty and link up your creations!  The more the merrier and the greater your chances to win! We can’t wait to see what you make!
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great day!!
