Happy Retirement!

A dear colleague (and our daughter's 1st grade teacher) retired last week.  While this card looks like a graduation card, I made for her for her retirement.  The inside says, "Congratulations on your 'graduation' to retirement!"  She's an avid reader who is also writing a mystery novel so I thought that this owl from the Teacher Appreciation stamp set was a great fit.
The "congratulations" stamped all across the card base is from the Diploma Day stamp set.  I used pieces from the Chalk It Up paper pack and a sketch from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 2.  Embellishments include teal shimmer trim, a black epoxy star, and black sparkles.
I think she's happy to be retiring!  Best wishes, Mrs. Turlington, as you begin this new chapter in your life!
