MC Nov/16 - Side Easel Heirloom Roses - ECD Thanks - Happy Retirement
I don't think I've ever made a retirement card before, but since this was a commission I'm pleased with the results. those Heirloom Hybrid Roses from Die-Namics, just goes so well with Anna Griffins Rosa embossing folder..

Anyway, if you want to see all the details and descriptions, just click on any card image. Enjoy

I'm using an A Way With Words die from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Thanks" also available on Quietfire Design HERE
