Stamp something challenge

retirement card (2)

retirement card (2) close up

This week’s challenge over at stamp something is ‘brown plus something’.  I went to a retirement party on Friday night and this is the card I made for the lucky lady, which fits perfectly with their challenge.  I used an image by cc designs called ‘kiki la rue – coffee’ (which is available at dies to die for) and coloured her with my promarkers, adding highlights with white gel pen.  The pink paper is provocraft and the brown paper is making memories.  The border edge was a RAK and the flowers were cut with my ek success (large, medium and small) retro flower punches.  The sentiment is elzybells (which comes as one long sentiment but I cut it apart) and the adhesive stone is PM.  I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday afternoon, it’s not very nice here – quite wet and grey but at least it’s good weather to craft lol!  Thanks for stopping by today.

I would never have thought to use this stamp as a retirement image but it works so well.

We had a gorgeous sunny day today, should I not really mention that?!
