Yesteryear-Hooray for Anna

As I mentioned in my previous post, the challenge at ABC Challenge is “Y is for Yesteryear.” For this challenge, we were supposed to go back and find one of the first stamps that we had ever purchased and create a card using that stamp. Now, I had almost forgotten that I had bought a few stamps years ago thinking that someday I might use them. They sat in a drawer for many years until this challenge reminded me that I had them. I was fortunate enough to find a Cherished Teddies stamp from 1996  – Hooray for Anna – from Stampendous.

Here is my card:

and here is a close up of the image:

I am still learning about the coloring, but I am pretty happy with the job I did on this one. The papers, from Sandy Lion, were some that I had from when I worked on the baby album for my friend and I thought they worked well for the yesteryear theme. Let me know what you think!
