Happy Retirement

This is one card that could be used for a lot of different occasions.  Just change the sentiment and this would be nice for a masculine birthday, thinking of you, thank you, or Father's Day card.  So if you have any golfers in your life this a la carte On the Green single stamp would be nice to have.

I started with Garden Green cardstock which I layered with an embossed piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, and a piece of Presto Patterns Specialty DSP that was sponged with Garden Green ink to bring out the pattern.  A piece of Early Espresso 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon was added to these two layers before I placed them onto the Garden Green card base.  I stamped the golfer with Garden Green ink and matted this with another piece of Early Espresso cardstock.  I made this card a Retirement Card, but as you can see, you can add a variety of sentiments to this card  to make it suitable for the right occasion.
