Relaxing Retirement

One of my Aunts retired last week and I was asked (by another Aunt!) to make her a card. I've used a Bugaboo image, coloured it with Promarkers and glitter glue and cut it out with a Nestie. I've then used the Nestie as a template for layering the other card behind it.

I've had the scalloped card blank in my stash for ages so that got used along with my liquid pearls (needing some more!) and I've added two different types of ribbon plus the beaded organza was originally a necklace but I've cut it up as it looked better on cards!

Mind you, they took longer to glue to the card than it took me to make it! I've handwritten the sentiment as I don't have a stamp with it on and I couldn't be bothered to print one off on the pc....!
