Another retirement card....

This is a retirement card I made for our pastor. It is an easel type card. I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities for the book...finally. I bought this set over a year a go and this is the first time i used it! Now, I can think of a lot of book cards to make! The papers are from my scrap bin. I did use a brown coordinations embossed with the Cuttlebug Fleur d'Lis folder I used some odds and ends to add a little personality...pocket watch for retirement, dove and cross to represent our church, printed ribbon, finally the butterflies...Pastor Tom had a beautiful carved butterfly cross in his office & he often referred to in in his sermons, so....I also thought the butterfly was symbolic of his "flying away" to start this new chapter in his life. Anyhow...I really like how it turned out.
