This came about after I punched out the blue star from the card stock and used it on a previous card... got to thinking that I could make a patriotic card and it turned into this Happy Retirement card.
Sentiment from Stampin' Up
The base card stock is from SU, very subtle yellow (sorry bad with the names they call the colors)
I stamped the hummingbird on textured cs to get the ripple effect as if it was in flight.
Sentiment and bird from SU as wells as the pearls
