Remarkable Retirement Card

This week I needed a card for my mother-in-law to celebrate her retirement! She didn't want a big fuss made over it, so I tried to keep my card simple, but elegant and not too extravagant. I loved experimenting with the Simple Memories lace stamp set last week and wanted to use another stamp set I haven't played around with yet too, Remarkable Wreath. Not wanting to introduce a bunch of patterns or colours, I used a woodgrain embossing for the background. This week's Freshly Made Sketch was my layout inspiration:

Supplies used: cardstock - Kraft, Colonial White, Slate (CTMH); ink - Cashmere, Slate, Goldrush (CTMH); 
stamp sets - Simple Memories, Remarkable Wreath (CTMH); embellishments - Bohemian Assortment (CTMH), twine; 
Cuttlebug embossing folder - woodgrain (Stampin' Up!).

  2. Fabulous card! I love how you've kept the clean background which shows off your lace stamps and wreath! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
