Happy Retirement!

This card came together rather quickly, AFTER I quit mulling about the paper, the ribbon, the sentiment etc etc etc.

Is anyone else like that?

The stamp is a Lockhart stamp that I bought from Ellen's store (ya, I get to call her Ellen).

I stamped the slippers on Papertrey Ink Stamper’s Select White Cardstock and then again on the Basic Grey Boxer paper so I could paper piece them.

I coloured the rest of the slippers with copics and then pieced the toes of the slippers on and adhered the image to the brown paper also from the Boxer line of Basic Grey.

The base of the card is Papertrey Ink's Perfect Match Quality Cardstock Spring Moss with a complimentary piece of Boxer paper glued to it.

The "Happy retirement" sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages, and the "life's simple pleasures" is from Papertrey Ink's Shapes by Design.
The ribbon is MY stock ribbon and is actually a lot closer to the Boxer background colour in real life - sometimes cameras take the silliest pictures!!
