Time To Retire & Reflect

Good morning all, happy Friday!
I have a little retirement card to share with you today!

It's a very CAS design!
The base is A6 Kraft CS. I embossed with a papermania pocket watch folder
Then swooshed with some DI in Antique Linen & added some bronze gilding wax.
The sentiment was printed on my PC using Mountains of Christmas font,
then die cut with a Spellbinders die & given the DI & gilding wax treatment.
I added a little watch charm to embellish.
As you can't do retirement properly with out a watch! lol


You can just about see inside in this photo.....
I added a vintage travel paper as the recipient loves to travel.
Thanks for popping in!
