Happy Retirement

It's that time of the year and retirement cards are needed.  This is as far as I have gotten. Something pretty simple.  Using Grand  Labels 4 and my new  Grand Calibur  I cut the base and mounted paper from Graphic 45 "Once Upon a Springtime Collection".  I stamped a JustRite Fancy Label in Memento Brown and added a sentiment from Impression Obsession and added little bronze pearls from Viva Pearl Pen.  The bow is a double with a brad from CTMH added.  I also used Walnut Stain on the edges.  (edit note:  this was mounted on white card stock.  When cutting remember that the die goes above the fold so it does not cut the CS. Then just mount the card base aligning the shape.)   Hope you enjoy.


Thank you for your comments. They are like hot cocoa in winter that makes you feel warm inside.
