Retirement card!

Hello everyone.

A fellow co-worker just retired last week. I was asked to make a card for her. She is one awesome person and a very classy lady! I was trying to make a card that fit her personality. Wednesday we had a party for her, and I am happy to report, she really liked her card.

This card was actually made using Stampin' Up! stamps. I hardly ever use Stampin' Up! anymore. Now don't get me wrong, their products are amazing, BUT I am totally in love with alot of the newer stamps that are coming out....ie. Magnolia, Rachelle Anne Miller, and Hanglers!!

Stamps: SU reverse prints, SU riveting
Inks: embossing ink, SU chocolate chip
Paper: Bazzill Basics white and black cardstock, DCWV the old world stack
Accessories: brads, SU ribbon
Nestabilities and cuttlebug used for the sentiment.

Hope you like my card too, have a great day!
