Forgotten Stamp Friday-Week 17

Hey everyone, and welcome to Forgotten Stamp Friday.....where is my card...well, it's part of my My Favorite Things teaser post for today, so be sure to head there to see it!! Not familiar with this challenge...well, you should be!! Every week, I challenge myself, and all of you, to make a card using your poor, lonely, dusty, unused, forgotten stamps. I feel guilty with the sheer VOLUME of stamps that I own in comparison to what I ACTUALLY use, so this challenge is one that helps me to ease my guilt a little. There are NO rules, just that you
b) use a stamp that is either unused or owned and un-inked for 6 months
c) come back and add yourself to the linky thingy so I can see what you've done
d) be sure if you upload to SCS, that you use the keyword FSF17...that way I can find you!!

There is no time limit, this is just a jumping off point for you to get into those old stamp sets, and show them some love.
Here's a little peeky of my sample, but seriously, go see the whole thing!!

Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! Don't forget to add yourself to my linky thingy.

Right now, There She Goes has their changing of the seasons sale going on, so be sure to get in on that action!!!

For my card tonight, I used the Sweet Pea set which is part of the sale going on right now. Since Kim said no markers...I had to revert to some old coloring tactics...I water colored. It kinda hurt a lot. After water coloring my image with SU reinkers and an aquapainter, I layered it with Soft Sky and Wild Cherry. My DP is part of the Cosmo Cricket Modern Homemaker line. My ribbon is from MFT, and the scallops are from the Small Scalloped Die-namics.
Well, that is it for me for now. Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!
