Happy Retirement

We have another co-worker who is vacationing out before retiring.  I made this card for our group to sign and send to him so he knows how happy we are for him (jealous)!!!! tee!hee!

I borrowed this idea from a card Becky Roberts had on her site at Inking Idaho.  That lady is so crafty!  I used Springtime Vintage DSP and glued it onto Not Quite Navy CS and then ran it through the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  That layer is mounted onto a layer of Soft Suede CS and the card base is Baja Breeze stamped with the large flower from Elements of Style Stamp Set.  The Happy Retirement sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. I used the Small Oval punch to cut it out and then layered it onto Baja Breeze CS punched with the Scallop Oval Punch, both of those sponged with Soft Suede Ink and layered onto Not Quite Navy CS punched with the Decorative Label Punch.  The ribbon is Baja Breeze Seam Binding.  Hope you can see the embossing, it really makes this card.
