Military Retirement

Good morning all! I'm back for day two. Not sure I'll be back tomorrow...depends on what I get done today!
A friend of mine asked me to make a card for them to give to her husband's former commander.  I wasn't sure what I wanted to make so I just Googled military retirement card and clicked on images to take a look around.  When I saw this I knew I had to make one so...yes, this is an almost completely CASE'd card but I think it is great none the less so I thought I'd share.  All the stamps are from PaperTrey Ink and the papers are all from a Taylored Expressions 4th of July pack a year or two ago.  I kid you not...I had to re-stamp the sentiment on this card SIX times before it was straight enough for me to be happy with it. 

I have some notebooks that I made for my teammates for the Origami Owl National Convention that I leave for on Thursday that I'd like to share with you guys but I have to see if I have time to photograph them first.  We shall see.  I may just take photos with my phone and be good with that. 

Okay, gotta get my day started!  Have a wonderful one all!

What an awesome card, Lorie! You really nailed this one! It's lovely and I am sure will be much appreciated! Have fun at your convention. I just had a short vacation last week and I am already ready for more days off. It must be time to retire. LOL!
