I was asked to make a retirement card for a colleague at work. She's been with the company for years and will be missed terribly.
In her spare time she runs a B&B so we decided it would be nice to make her a leaving card which included that.
Her actual B&B is very modern so we thought it wouldn't make an appropriate Retirement card. I went off hunting for inspiration and this is what I've come up with. A spring time country cottage with blossoms on the tree.
You can find Country Cottage in my Etsy shop and get it with 10% off by quoting code SKIANDREA10. It comes with and without the B&B on the sign - just in case you don't want that bit :)
I've used Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils to colour this image. The Happy Retirement sentiment was created at the time of printing.
Creating a CAS style card I've layered it up with black card and green design paper from Lili of the Valley. I've just added a few paper blossoms to give a little dimension.
