Pinque Peacock - Retirement Card

Today I made a retirement card for you.
It's a screen card.
I haven't done the sentiment yet
as I want something special but I havne't
found just the right one yet.

It is very rustic.. but that is what I was going for.

I used a yellow gingham splendid swirl.
 (they come in two sizes and lots of fabrics!)

The back side of the card was embossed
then white washed then stamped.

The front was modge podged with a napkin (green and white gingham)
(which you can't see at all) and then all kinds
of mediums on it.. Finally stamped it...
I love these screen cards but I think I 
will make the next one shorter.
Hope you like my card and if
you have any ideas for sentiments for this card
I would love to hear them...

Come and join our Pinque Peacock Challenge.
It's all about altered tags this month and I
would love to see yours...


  1. Laura this screen card is awesome!!! I have never seen one before but am going to try it!!!!

  2. Laura I just love this card. For the sentiment of course "Wishing you" on the wishing well section and " Peace in your retirement" for the House? Just a thought. TFS~Mary
