Retirement Card

Taking a break from the confirmation cards and made one for retirement. The design is inspired by the CASE over at Inkspirational, but I went for square and circles instead of rectangular with rounded edges. I also used twine instead of ribbon. I've used the white, red and green color scheme, but decided to add black as well, as the image has a black circle frame around the flower. The flower I colored using Promarkers, and I also added Glossy Acent to the rose. The flower is a digi from Bugaboo, the sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #20 CASE
2) Crafty Creations - #222 Keep It Simple
3) Creative Moments -#17 Circles
4) I love Promarkers - #168 Simple
5) Without Words - Floral
6) Crafty Ribbons - #45 No designer paper
7) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
