I used the Wild about Flowers stamp set for this card. This card is a simple, single layer card. There aren't any fancy techniques. The Gorgeous Grunge splatter stamp pulls it all together to create a unified piece. That's my tip for the day...use a stamp, such as the stamps that are in the Gorgeous Grunge set, that can be stamped over 'white' area in a piece to add interest and pull the entire piece together.
The Wild about Flowers stamp set has a couple of sentiments that are specifically for retirement cards. I have had several teacher friends retire recently and have a couple more coming up, so I thought that the Writing Note stamp, stamped as the background, would be perfect for the occasion. The Writing Note stamp can be omitted and just the splatter stamp used and it will still be a nice retirement card.
