Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! While it's not quite meteorological summer yet, most of the schools are out & it's pretty much officially summer. Vacations have started & I know a lot of folks retire about now. Like my Golf Lady. And she looks pretty happy about it, too. She reminds me a little of my Aunt Mary. Mary has probably played more golf than Arnold Palmer! 
For the green background, I put the die cut panel into my Misti and stamped the Later Alligator first w/ the bamboo ink then shifted it slightly & stamped again w/ the white pigment ink to get that shadow effect. The golf lady was stamped, colored, fussy cut & I wrote Retired on her license plate. Part of the background stamp was used for the greeting below her. 

Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
 Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
paper: Staples 110# white, mint green, pink
ink: Memento tuxedo black, bamboo leaves, Colorbox frost white pigment
accessories:  Copic markers, Misti, ODBD double stitched rectangles & rectangles dies

Julie, that shadow effect is so cool. At first I was trying to figure out how you got an embossing folder matching the new See You Later Alligator stamp! Super fun golfer too - colored up perfectly. Fun retirement card with some great techniques. Hugz
