Happy Retirement

I made this card for a senior who is going to retire very soon from my bank!

I am also entering this card to the following challenges:

2.Moxie Fab World: Happy for Hexagons Challenge

   In terms of style, I think my card would fall in the category of Classy and Elegant as my card has shiny finish, rich color scheme, and layered textures.
Card Details
1.Background stamp is by Hero Arts and text stamp is by Stampin’ Up.

2.Stencils (both the hexagon and the flower) are by The Crafter’s Workshop.

3.A thin coat of gesso was applied over the stamped background to create a shabby chic look. Gold Embossing Paste was spread over the flower stencil to get the embossed gold flower.

After the Chinese Lunar New Year, I have been so busy that I haven’t got time to enter any challenges! I am so glad that I managed to made this card not only for a senior but also entered some challenges!

  4. Hi, Helen! Your card came after mine at The Card Concept. I was drawn to the gold embossing paste on your card -- definitely classy!
