Happy Retirement
I created a slimline card for a good friend of mine that retired from teaching after 44 years.  She was my Friday evening crafting buddy until we retired five years ago to a new location.  I see her three times a year... for two scrapbook crops and the CKC convention.  This card will be in her possession by the time it's posted here.  Quick, colorful and easy.

The stencil is inked with blended distress inks.  I matted the front of the card with coordinating green cardstock and centered the stamped sentiment.
