happy retirement…

Our wonderful doctor is retiring this year after watching over our family for over 25 years!
She will be missed for sure.
The base card is cream card stock with a later of textured card stock.
The main panel was made on white card stock using a gel plate and Distress Oxide inks.
I cut more textured card stock to match the sketch.
Using bits of the main panel and leftover textured card stock I die cut the flowers using a die from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and a paper punch using glue dots to apply it to the card front.
To finish I stamped the sentiment from Stampendous (1998).


  1. Beautiful colors together, Arlene, love the texture and the assembled flowers - very calm and lovely! Thanks so much for playing at Retro Rubber!

  2. Great use of your 'retro rubber' Arlene - love your results and how you have used the sketch!
    We had our doctor retire after a similar length of time as patients - not the best of experiences, but did appreciate the service we had received

  3. Such a pretty retirement card. Love your take on the sketch. Thanks for playing along at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
