Just to Say .......................... Enjoy Your Retirement

My Union Representative where I work is leaving on Friday to say his new life - his retirement.  He's helped me over the years so I wanted to make him a card.

As he enjoys time near the sea it had to be a seaside/nautical themed card.

I have used my Debbi Moore Shabby Chic Seaside CD and Debbie Moore Shabby Chic Nautical CD.  I have used backing papers (striped and shells), decoupage topper, embellishments and I have cut another backing paper with shells on it to use as embellishments.

I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment, satin ribbon and some Crafty Ribbons small shell ribbon.

I just hope he has a long and happy retirement.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
