House Mouse Monday Challenge #38

I know I'm too late for the House Mouse Monday Challenge #38 but I did finally get my card done so I thought I would post it anyway. The challenge was a sketch and I love doing sketches. I knew what I wanted to do for this challenge but life kept getting in the way.

I was asked to make a retirement card for one of the ladies I work with. After 45 years, she is finally hanging up her typewriter. She loves warm weather and is looking forward to relaxing and spending time at the beach. I thought "In A Nutshell" was perfect. I colored it in the Prismacolor colored pencils, blended with gamsol. All the papers are from DCWV "Citrus" paper pad. I used the standard circle and scallop circle dies from Nestabilities; the ribbon is from a QVC ribbon pack and the charms are from stash. I've also added a touch of Diamond Stickles for a little glitz.

Cheers, Judi
