Retirement Congratulations



Good morning, everyone! I've been busy making cards but couldn't post them just yet. Here is a 5.25 X 7.25 card that I made for a dear friend who is retiring. This card is much larger than ones I usually make but I wanted to use the large scalloped rectangle. I just love the mustard colored card stock matted in black. I think it is so striking. And the scalloped rectangle just frames the embossed focal point layer so beautifully. Below is a list of the products I used in this project:

Card Stock  -  GKD white, honey mustard, black onyx, grass green
Dies  -  Spellbinders Detailed Scallops, HFC Delicate Asters
Embossing folder  -  Marianne DS0908
Punch  -  MS leaf
Sentiment  - computer generated
Other  -  glue dots, foam dimensionals, Tombo Mono adhesive, Stickles

This card was entered into the following challenge(s):
Sister Act  -  Challenge #21 - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday  -  Challenge #94  -  Anything Goes
TTCRD  - Aug 20-27 Challenge -  Anything Goes
The Outlawz  -  Twisted Thursday - Anything Goes
