Happy retirement Petite Petals
ontinued inspiration from some of my favorite retiring products.
Pinterest was my inspiration for this card. It is stamped in outgoing Tip Top Taupe with the Hardwood background stamp on a Very Vanilla cardstock piece. It makes a pretty back drop for the Watermelon Wonder flowers accented with Cucumber Crush stems from the retiring Flower Patch set. You will want to grab these favorites while they are still available!
