Happy Retirement

Good Morning! I made this card for a very special lady who is retiring this summer from our school. She is one of our Assistant Principals and I also happen to know her because I got my master's degree with her. She is such a cheerful person and always willing to help and listen. She will be missed be everyone!!

I used the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge for the design of my card. I took a few liberties because I wanted to add a sweet Pure Innocence image on the card. My Copic blending on her face looks good in person, but awful in this photo!! Clearly the camera sees more than I do, LOL!
