A Relaxing Retirement

I really liked the effect of the greeting done in die-cut letters on my last card so I carried on with the same for today's card. I needed a retirement card large enough for lots of people to sign so ended up making a huge A4 card the only spec I had was something 'pretty and girlie' (obviously an early retirement and not an OAP!)

The digi is a delightful image of a lady relaxing with wine and chocs in a wonderful bubblebath - I found the image in a file called 'Digis 2008' and I'm afraid I don't know where it is from. I do wish people would label freebie digis with a name so that when you download them it records where they are from! I've coloured it using pastel promarkers and added a couple of gems to provide a bit of bling.

I've entered this card into the following challenges...

Papertake Weekly - something girlie
Make It Monday - anything goes
My Time To Craft - make it wet
