Throwback Thursday # 9

For today's Throwback Thursday card I used two retired sets; Around and About and Mini Messages. It was a challenge for me to do something with the Around and About set. I looked for inspiration in magazines and on Pinterest. Finally I decided to use it in an unconventional way, to create a background. I also needed something to go inside the frames so I pulled out the Mini Messages set.

I didn't have any black Stampin' Up! ribbon, retired or current, so I pulled out some retired Thick Twine and dyed it black (request this tutorial to learn how I did that). I decided to add a little extra sparkle to the card so I pulled out some heart rhinestones that I got on clearance at the local craft store...love to pick up embellishment on close-out after a holiday!
