I was trying out my new Indigo Blu stamps and really fancied making a card with this one. Thought it would be a great card for retirement !
I have stamped it onto paper from crate paper , then stamped some swirls from Autumn leaves around the edge and finished with some knotted tartan ribbon from Crafty Ribbons. I have resisted the temptation to add more embellishments, challenging myself to some more simple cards !

I will enter this card into challenges at:
Word play saturday - swirls
Loves rubberstamps - funny sentiment
Cards Und more - non cute
Cardz4guyz - CAS
Crafting for all Seasons - Sentiment as focus
Male Room - Retirement
Fab N Funky - Spots or stripes (or both)
