Retirement Card (Artful Delight #27)

Amidst all the preparations for the upcoming Holidays, i am here today for a very quick post to share with you a card i made this weekend for a coworker who is retiring soon.  Lucky her!!

I based my card on Sketch 27 at Artful Delight:

 This card makes me happy with its bright colors, the chic embossed background and of course the gorgeous Dusty Attic bird cage!  I used a mixture of papers from Teresa Collins and Echo Park.

Along with the Artful Delight sketch, i was inspired by this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog.  

Simon Says....  What's your favorite?  

The Cuttlebug with which i did the background embossing is my favorite tool and laser-cut chipboard is my favorite product.  Also, i LOVE bracket shapes as the one i used on this card!  I could easily use them on every paper project i create. 

Thank you for joining me today!

I'll be back tomorrow for the last December reveal for Scrap It with a Song!
