Congrats on Your Retirement!

Hey everyone!  I have a bright card to share with you today!  

Jen Carter Sunburst Retirement 1

I'm excited how this card turned out.  I used the Wrapper's Delight: Sunburst die cut with vellum.  I embossed the sentiment from a great sentiment set, Go Confidently, with red embossing powder.  How many times I needed a retirement stamp but didn't have the right thing in my stash I can't count!  I love that this set gives me so many mix & match sentiment options and it works perfectly on the sunburst die!

To attach the vellum, I just wrapped the ends of the piece where the sentiment is embossed around to the back side of the cardstock and attached where you can't see it!  I love that it is hidden!  For the dotted edges I used the Dual Dotted Rectangle Dies that I seem to reach for all of the time now and trimmed one strip to use as a border on the card.  I felt like it worked well with the confetti patterned paper. 

I'm entering this card at the Curtain Call's Challenge: Celebrate.

 I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Anything Goes.
