Happy Retirement

Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans! I hope you're having a great week! 

My post today features "Butterfly Guy" and the Happy Retirement sentiment, both older stamps from High Hopes. I don't know anyone personally who is retiring any time soon but I felt like these two stamps went together perfectly and it is always good to have some extra cards in your stash. You never know what will come up! 

I started by stamping Butterfly guy with my Misti and colouring with alcohol markers. I edged all of my papers with distress ink and added some sparkle to the butterflies with a clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen. The Polka Dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug was perfect to add some texture to my yellow cardstock. Silver brads and some silver magic mesh (to match the net) finish off my card.
