Sit back and relax

Hi and thanks for stopping by.

I am very pleased to have been voted blog of the week over at Crafting from the Heart Facebook page this week!

My card today is for one of my hubby's ex-colleagues who is retiring in the near future.

Once again I have used one of my Lili of the Valley boy stamps called Take it Easy - which is what you have earned when you retire!

I have colored him with my Spectrum Noir pens and used polychromo pencils for shading. The papers are Lili of the Valley Country Gent matted with some brown card from my stash.
I've embellished with some of Craftwork card's Card Candi and some decorative corners that I had in my stash. The sentiment is also a Lili of the valley one die cut with spellbinders.
I've used distress ink to give it an aged look but definitely need more practise doing this!
I have entered this card into the following Challenges
Crafts Galore Encore Challenge: Using a stamp or Digi
