my long-time dear work colleague is retiring to Florida and she needs a decent card to celebrate this occasion. I have worked with her for almost 18 years. I am happy for her to be able to retire, but I also have severe retirement envy....
I took two Your Next Stamp sets to make this card. The layout I took from the current YNS challenge. Used Simon Says stitched dies to cut the circles and marked them on a piece of water color paper. Stamped the croc and flamingo and colored them with water brush pens and Inktense. Stamped the sentiment.
Mounted the top panel with foam tape. I actually added on an additional page - it more a little booklet than a card, so that all my colleagues can sign as well. I attached it with Washi tape. You can see it peeking out a bit on the first picture.
