This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 323 - Rich Vanilla Roses. I have also included Monday's TECHNQIUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 325 - Paper Buttons and CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 119 - Word Inspiration (Gift). One of our long time directors is retiring this year and this will be her card that will go with a gift. So jealous bc I wish I was at retirement age!
My layout is from MOJO MONDAY # 191. I loved this clean design and just had to use it.
My focal image is Garden Silhouettes inked with certainly celery, regal rose, and rich razzleberry markers then huffed and stamped. I embossed this panel with Sizzix Square Lattice EF then matted on rich razzleberry. My popped up square panel is Razzleberry lemonade matted on regal rose with a vanilla paper made button tied with some regal rose 1/8in ribbon atop. I used some vanilla lace between these panels.
Now off to work since I still have another decade + before "I" can retire. LOL.

Gorgeous, Neva. So dainty and feminine.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
