Someone at work is retiring and I volunteered to make the card. Do you know how many retirement images are out there?? Not enough! I spent quite a bit of time hunting on-line for digi images to work with and eventually pieced some things together. I will post the finished card in a day or two.
In all that searching I discovered a couple new-to-me companies. I love those happy discoveries! One of those companies is Sassy Cheryl, what a fun shop to browse! I purchased a digi image and created a 3-fer challenge card.
First, it uses the March SFYTT sketch by Jen.
And then I combined 2 challenges from Sassy Cheryl's blog, the Color Me #14 and Challenge #54, Pink & White. Here is the final card...
I needed to make my card 5 1/4" square to accommodate the larger image I printed. All coloring done with Copics. I used bits of dark brown crocheted ribbon on the middle strip and added a die cut flower. The sentiment is from Verve.
I had a spurt of creating energy and I hardly wanted to stop but with daylight savings tonight it has gotten to be way past my bedtime. Good new though cause now I have blog fodder for a few days!
