Happy Retirement

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How was your weekend?

Rick and I were at a party on Saturday night celebrating Luke's surprise 30th birthday.
We had a fabulous night and it was great to catch up with the family too.

A busy week ahead as my new designer papers are coming out on 1st May over on my Etsy store

A retirement card to share with you today.

Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 square Kraft card base.
2. The first layer I used Distress Paint Victorian velvet to stamp the script onto white card, I then distressed over using DI cracked pistachio and wild honey, rubbed the colour back over the words to enhance the script. I then stamped the pointy finger and "admit one" with Archival ink. To finish off I sprinkled water over, then distressed around layer with walnut stain.
3. I added the topper and sentiment with foam pads for dimension.
4. To finish off I added the ticket which I have distressed with walnut stain.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
