Retirement Card

Well, it was an exciting day for my husband today as it was his first day of retirement. Unfortunately for us the weather was uncooperative to go out and celebrate, yet at the same time he was glad he did not have work in it.
So, today's post starts off the new year with a card that came together beautifully. I decided to try my hand at one of the flip cards, which I originally saw on Gabrielle Pollaccos blog "Such a Pretty Mess", whom not only shares a template for making the card but also has put together a wonderful video tutorial to follow.
The images I chose to use both came from Mo's Digital pencil. The first being "Extra", the young paper boy announcing the exciting news, as well as "King for the Day", a man enjoying his new position in life. Consequently, these combined images brought the theme of the card together, along with the wonderful embellishments of a black telephone, retirement charm and last but not least the red telephone booths, a fun momento for a retired telephone man.

Happy Retirement My Darling,
