Retirement Cards

Sketch time at Come and Get It this week. Julie has provided us with the sketch.  My card was made for a gentleman that asked me to make him two retirement cards. One if for a male and the other a female, this is what I came up with for the male. The card was made using the Open Sea set from Stampin up along with the Teeny Tiny wishes set. The background of the ship was masked then sponged with Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay. then took the mask off and stamped the ship image in Early Espresso. The designer paper is retired from the Woodland walk set, which  is available as a download. The sentiment was stamped on an oval then sponged with Bermuda Bay, and then mounted onto Artisan Label punch which will be available on May 31st. Oh the Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay are colors coming back into the core colors of Stampin Up as of May 31 as well. Thanks for looking. The second card is not the sketch but the second card I made for the lady retiring.
