A Retirement card

Last night Carol came to class wanting to so a retirement card for a couple who planned to spend
 lots of time in their caravan in their retirement.
Carol had found a caravan design, but wasn't sure what else to put on the card.
I suggested a woodland scene with the addition of a few ducks!
So here is the finished easel card that Carol made.

Front view

Side view
Stamp sets used: Lovely as a Tree and Wetlands.
"Hit the Road" was computer generated and fussy cut into a banner shape,
the Happy Retirement sentiment was from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
Colour combo is Wild Wasabi, Basic Black and White.
Various punches were used including Word Window 
and the Modern Label punch for the sentiment.
I just love those little ducks!!
