I wanted to make a 'Happy Retirement' card for a colleague, but had two problems to overcome; Not only do I find this theme quite a tough one, but also she's not really into my fussy style cards. So I did some thinking, and eventually came up with a design which I hope she might like.
For such a simple card, you would not believe how much time it took to plan! I even procrastinated for a while about adding a trio of pearls in one or other corner, but in the end decided it didn't need anything else. So I stopped.
Talk about 'Simples!' :0)
