Retirement Card!


Hi everyone I am enjoying a cooler day today here in Durham! It's been a welcome reprieve!
I made this card for my Sister who retired from teaching yesterday! 
She is feeling a little lost as she loved her job. 
I bought this lovely Inkylicious sentiment stamp at Doncaster last weekend I think it's perfect for her retirement card.
Flower stamp is from Clearly Besotted. I used Wow EP. Decoupaged the flowers. Fiskers corner scissors. Linen card stock.
I did it to much Linda's sitting room lol! She likes things matching but is a less is more kinda girl!

Challenges
Less Is More "Handmade flowers"
Make it Monday "Anything goes"
Thanks for calling
xx Jan
