Yes I did..

I dug deep into that old stash of papers for this one. This is some really old K&Co. paper. I must have gotten it 6-7 years ago and off ebay at that. (Please tell me I'm not the only one holding on to paper for 6-7 years.) This paper had the colors I was looking for. I made this card for the color throwdown challenge. Here are the colors I'm attempting to use:

And that new punch I mentioned in my previous post- I used it too. My layout is based on the sketch at Stamp Something- this week's challenge is "sketch something". This is an anniversary card for my parents and for the Creative Inspirations challenge to make an anniversary card. Thanks for the push to get this done early. My parents have an anniversary at the end of this month. They are not as old as the folks in the image, but I thought it was so sweet.

(Note and tip about the image: if it looks funny, it is in no way due to the quality of Mo's work. It is totally my fault. When I printed this, I pasted it along with others into a new page in Photoshop elements. I forgot to check the resolution. It was at 72dpi. UGH! Always set your document to 300 for good results.)
