My card was made with the Flower Fest set AGAIN!! Yes, I love it!  This time I used the Rose Stamp and cut them out by hand.  I could have punched them out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch but I wanted to show the true curves to the rose.  I added a pearl to each rose and I used the crimper to crimp the paper right above and right below the sentiment.  It is hard to see in the photo but I love how the crimping highlight's the sentiment.  The sentiment comes from the "Word Play" stamp set which is on sale right now!!!

I used all recycled pieces from my scrap box to make this card!  I had the Melon Mambo piece already cut and embossed.  The black card base was left over from another card and the ribbon was also in my stash.  This is another retirement card for another secretary who is retiring at the end of June.  I thought the sentiment was fitting, "Imagine the Possibilities".  I sure could imagine them if I was retiring but I have 25 years to go!!!
