Happy Retirement

A co-worker friend asked me to make a retirement card for a friend of hers.  She didn't want an image, just something pretty...So, here is what I came up with after some Pinterest inspiration.  I used some fun retirement DP, flowers, a pair of leaf dies, an embossing folder, some pearls and some ribbon.  Inside I created the sentiment with the help from a rose from Fred She Said's Diamond Rose Set.


Thanks for looking!

Such a beautiful design with great embossing! We are blessed that you linked with our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday and inviting you to join us again in our current challenge. Leaving you with the encouragement from God's Word in Romans 15:5-6 which tells us, "May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." Have a great Memorial Day weekend.

Blessings,
JO ANN
