…until the world will be sorry that you retire

Sharing a CAS card featuring Uptown Girl Simone Loves Strawberries from Stamping Bella.

My layout follows the current sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches where the circle element was crying out to be a shaker.  Luckily, I had some champagne glass confetti to throw in with some sequins that are kinda the right colour for champagne bubbles.

Going with the champagne theme I’ve used a snowfall die to add champagne bubbles to the background of the shaker and repeated this for the rectangular element.  As I’ve kept this CAS without DP, I added this repeated bubble effect for interest and also so I could play along at Little Red Wagon for their Repeat Day challenge.

It’s a special challenge over at Cardz 4 Galz where they’re having a party to celebrate their 100th challenge and I’m so please to be able to come to the party.  This card is going out to a colleague for her retirement, which is definitely an event to celebrate as she looks forward to doing lots of enjoyable things unfettered by the routine of the nine-to-five daily grind!

My card is also my DT project for the July challenge at Bizzy Bec’s.  We’re always rocking an anything goes theme so why not join us there for your chance to win a stamp or die chosen by Bec.
