Retirement Card

A collegue of my husbands was retiring so I had to come up with a card for him. I used the heavier Naturals White card stock(102316) for the base and card front. The front was sponged with Early Espresso ink(119670), now retired Well Worn DSP(122359) was layered onto Early Espresso Cardstock(119686). I used the Open Sea Stamp Set(w-123030 or 123032) to stamp in Early Espresso onto the Naturals White cardstock. This was then punched out with the 2.5" circle punch(120906) and it was layered onto a 3" circle of Early Esspresso that was cut using the Big Shot and the 3" circle original die
The sentiment is from the Occasions Alphabet (w-117090 or c-123598) stamped in Early Espresso.

Inside the card I stamped in Early Espresso several sentiments that seemed to apply to the situation. The compass is from The Open Sea set, next is from Word Play(w-120308 or c-120651) then Loving Thoughts(w-125843 or c-125845) and lastly Teeny Tiny Wishes(115370)

The pictures don't really give it justice, I was pleased with the card in the end.

Thanks for checking in today,
