Well, my profession does not allow for terribly early retirements like that unless you are Doogie Howser. Today's card is for a husband and wife who are retiring together. I had to balance the male (colors) and female (ribbon, scallopped circle) elements. I loved this sentiment, which is an epoxy sticker. I used Beate's weekend sketch as a guide for my layout, and some scraps from Saturday's card because I had not yet returned them to their home.
Imagine the fun it was to try to get a good, glare-free shot of this ribbon and this sticker at night. I am amazed I had a decent one to share. The sentiment says, "Goodbye Tension Hello Pension."
I think I'll retire... to bed, that is... after this one.
