When the new Stampin' Up! catalogue is released in a few months' time, five of the 'in colors' will be retiring, to make way for five new ones.  This week's challenge at Sunny Challenges & Creations, is to use 2010-2012 In Colors on a papercraft project, using this sketch:

I have been busy making swaps to take to Stampin' Up! Convention in 10 days' time (I'll share photos of them later!).  I already had out some of the In Colors for my swaps, so used my swap idea as a springboard for a card.  Here is the card I made, using Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz and Concord Crush:

Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Peach Parfait, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz
DSP: Peach Parfait Patterns Designer Series Paper
Ink: Peach Parfait, Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz stampin' pads
Other: Labels Collection Framelits dies, Blossom punch, Blossom Petals Builder punch, Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder, Concord Crush ribbon, Whisper White 1/8" taffeta ribbon, Scallop Edge border punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Basic Rhinestones, sponge daubers, mini glue dots
