A Retirement Card

I was recently asked to make a retirement card for someone who is leaving after 34 years. Wow she's worked for almost as long as I've been on this planet.
Now that deserves a medal, which kind of helped me when I designed the card, so here it is.

I printed out a wonderful grid backing paper I love papers with lines on them it makes placing everything else so much easier ;o) I coloured up a Saturated Canary image, added some lovely scrolls, pearls and gems. I used a co-ordinating paper to create a band along the bottom of the card and placed some ribbon along it. A little hand made flower compliments one end and I made the sentiment which reads "You deserve a medal" "Enjoy your retirement".
