Retirement Wishes!

Hello fellow Stampers and card makers, happy Monday to you all!
Today I'm sharing with you DRS Designs next sponsorship that began yesterday, August 7th and runs this entire week. 

 It's with the Cupcake Inspirations Blog.  The challenge is to use the cupcake picture below for your inspiration--it can be used for color, shape, texture or however else it may inspire you.  

**DRS Designs is giving away at $10.00 Store voucher to one lucky participant just for playing along--it could be you!

This photo inspired me to use it as a color challenge--the dark pink, green, and bright turquoise colors popped right out at me! I used them to create this Happy Retirement card.

I know when I retire I'd love to spend it on the beach, and I'm sure some of you would as well.  For this reason I picked the Brush Flamingo scene stamp (1054L) for the focal point on this card. It was colored with Copic Markers and I paired it with the Best Wishes Retirement Greeting (942D).  I didn't get too fancy with my embellishments on this card--need to keep things quick these days as my newborn baby is demanding a lot of attention! *wink* I used a decorative border punch, a ribbon scrap attached with a standard staple, and some clear rhinestones gems that I colored with my Copic Markers to match.  If this card has sparked your interest, (which I hope it has!) make sure to check out all of the other stamps in DRS  Designs Retirement Collection

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
