CTO Challenge # 15








Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at Celebrate The Occasion! This week the challenge is Retirement. When I think of retirement I think about laying on the beach, so thats what I did for my card. For my card I cut all the images from Pack Your Bags. The lounging girl was cut at 2.75 inches. I cut the shadow layer but trimmed it off around her head, arm, leg, and the legs of the chair so it just framed the chair. I highlighted her eyelashes with a white gel pen and added Glossy Accents to the cup and her lips. The sun was cut at 2 inches and I embossed it with Swiss Dots. I printed the sentiment on craft paper using my computer and just tore it to make the sand. The sentiment on the inside is also printed off my computer that I framed in matching paper. I hope you all will give this challenge a try and I can't wait to see what you will create! Have a great day!
