I retired last January (Yippee!) and on Tuesday a former co-worker is retiring and her department is having a party for her - so I needed a retirement card.
My card design was inspired by this card by Becky - the Featured Stamper over on Splitcoaststampers this week.
I used a succulent rather than a cactus (or I guess a cactus IS a succulent??!), changed the design slightly.
I didn't make mine a shaker - but did add clear sequins scattered about to give the impression of a shaker!
I colored my image using Tombow Markers and a Clear Glitter Wink of Stella to spread the color around - so IRL it is quite sparkly in the light!
I'm also linking my card to:
