A friend of mine recently retired from his current position in order to pursue another direction.  Because he is not truly retiring, I didn't want to make a Happy Retirement card.  Instead, I decided on a Congratulations card.  Because it needed to be masculine, I used one of my favorite designer paper packs – International Bazaar.  The colors in this paper are just vibrant.  The catalog picture does not do it justice.  And, this paper can be used for either feminine or masculine cards.  Early in my blog, I used it for some Pop-n-Cuts Dress cards. 

Layered Labels

As you can see, the dsp played a major role in the creation of this card.  But, the colors are a little wonky in the picture.  The chocolate chip looks almost burgundy.
