God Bless Your Retirement

>> Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Hi Everyone,

I often dream about what we will do when we hit retirement age, but it's a few years in the distance for us.  Winter in Florida? Travel? Buy a ranch? ( A one level house, not property with horses...lol!)  It's fun to think about, but at the same time I don't want to wish my life away.  So, while I'm living my life until then, I'll just have fun creating some cards with a retirement theme :)

It's a cream and black monochromatic card that I have for my share today, featuring the lovely God Bless Retirement Greeting that was stamped and die cut.

I created the background using the Polka Dot Flower and layered onto it a strip of Swiss Dot embossed paper and punched flower border.


For embellishment, I stamped the flower on black paper and heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I fussy cut it, attaching it to the card with a piece of foam tape and adding a black gem.
Here is a close up:


Here's to everyone who's blessed to live long enough to make those retirement dreams come true!

Have a great day!
Karin

OH Karin, this is lovely! Black $ white (cream) cards are always so elegant looking. And yours certainly is. Great layout, the fussy cut flower is awesome too!
