Retirement Card for Two Challenges

Okay, last post tonight, I promise :) For this card I used paper from the DCWV Tahiti stack (one of my favs), and Core Couture. I cut the island from Pack Your Bags, and embossed the palm leaves with the Swiss Dots folder. The retired guy reclining in the hammock is also from Pack Your Bags. The fluffy cloud is from Create a Critter, embossed with the swirls folder and chalked on the edges. The bubble ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
I welded the letters of Happy Retirement together on my Gypsy using Base Camp. Starfish shell beads are supporting the easel card. I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  1. Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Challenge #61 - include blue sky and at least one cloud
  2. Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #15 - retirement
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great evening :)
