Happy Retirement - Card

Hello everyone!

Today I'm back with a card I made for a lady at work who is retiring in a few days.

I used a ton of different products for my card.  First I used the Mama Elephant Peek a Frame window die, and this had one side that only scores and creates a score line to have the window swing open.  I the cut out the panel with the stitched rectangle that comes in the same ME die set.

I used Salty Ocean distress ink to colour the sky on the card base and used the cloud die out of the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio die set and glued that to the card base.

I used the Pretty Pink Posh picket fence die and added that to the background for some interest.  I used Seedless preserve and Evergreen Bough distress inks on a piece of water colour paper and cut out the butterflies using the Paper Smooches Butterfly Duet dies.  I just love these.

I then used the Cracked Pistachio distress ink on some regular card stock and cut out the word HAPPY with the MFT Emmit Alphabet dies.   To finish of the card I used some Pretty Pink Posh 4 & 6 mm marshmallow sequins and some Doodlebug sprinkles enamel dots and Chickiniddy enamel hearts that came in a Simson Card kit a while back.
