We Make A Living

An employee of mine retired last week and he is was a very giving man, always thinking of others, so I thought this stamp set was so fitting. I tried to keep the card clean & simple , but in the end I chose to soften it will a little ribbon and matching button. The black in the upper right hand corner is a top note I cut into quarters. The reason it's there is to hide a blemish I got onto the card front at the last moment. It was late, I was tired and didn't want to start over again. Plus, I don't know about you, but my projects never look as good the 2nd time around. The original always looks better to me, so I just rolled with it : )
