Personalised Retirement Card


I have made an A4 card because I was asked to include a number of images. I have printed the personalisation elements. I mounted all the images onto red card which I cut to size. I die cut the scalloped oval with a Xcut die from a nesting set.  I printed a personalised sentiment then die cut it with a larger die from the nesting set. I then cut a red scalloped circle to mount the sentiment. I matt and layered my card with red card and then white embossed card. I added all the elements to my card and then added flowers which I cut with a punch. I added flat backed pearls to the flowers and then finally added Tonic Nuvo drops to the background.

I would like to add this creation to the following challenges:
