A Muse Retirement

I bought some cute A Muse stamps, and needed a retirement card for my brother-in-law, who just retired from teaching. I thought this would work. All stamps used are A Muse except the sun, which is from my PaperTrey Green Thumb set. The grass was stamped tone-on-tone Gable Green. I cut it out with my scissors, and hobby blade for the tiny spots, then mounted with 2-Way Glue. I used the retired SU Cloud, Moon & Stars stencil for the clouds.

Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Happy Retirement, Hammock, Grass, PaperTrey circle (from Green Thumb)
Card Stock: PaperTrey White, Gable Green
Ink: Palette Noir, Soft Sky, Creamy Caramel, Gable Green, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange
Accessories: Cloud, Moon & Stars Stencil, 2-Way Glue

I'm alittle behind on my blogs - love the 4 cards you did. I really like the zebra - perfect. What a great card for retirement! That dutch paper is adorable with the birds and the green card is so elegant. Your work is always beautiful. Have a great day.
