Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week is "Journey" This is one of my favorite themes, whether it's travel or learning, we are always on a journey to be better, to do better.
See how others incorporated the theme here:
So a little back story...our manager is retiring at the end of May. She has been a wonderful boss and we are going to miss her dearly. I wanted to make a retirement card for her to reflect a new journey in her lfe. After all, life is good. It's all about perspective right?

What I love most about this is the fact that everything started out as white cardstock (except fot the teal background paper) it's all ink and paint and a fabulous stamp from Stampscapes. I love using Stampscapes and blending ink colors. Make sure you use glossy paper for vibrant results and blendability.
