Congrats on Your Retirement!

 
Today my dear friend Kellie is retiring from the Air Force after 20+ years of dedicated service and sacrifice.  She looks way to young to be retiring doesn't she??
I'm so glad our paths crossed during my military career.  I can honestly say I have never worked for someone so caring and devoted.  Congrats on your career Kel!  Thanks for all you do!
 
Here is the card I made her.  I had this in mind as soon as I saw the set - driving off into a sunset - great way to start an adventure =)
 

 
I used the Shimmer White Cardstock which is perfect for watercoloring and it has a shimmer already on it - even after you add color!  Cool, right?  I did add some Wink of Stella to the balloons for some extra glitz.

 
I did break out an old retired set.  Comes in handy for my military friends. :)

 
Thanks for stopping by!  Leave some love for my friend Kellie!
