Steaming ahead to retirement

This is a simple card using a jelly frame die cut from a Sizzix die (not used any of these in ages), a photo that I found in my recycled pictures and the sentiment, all mounted on to a black card blank.

This is for:

  1. Hello Hazel. What a lovely Retirement card. Great picture and I love the wavy frame. It brings back happy memories for me, my Dad used to be a Fireman on the Steam Railways, happy days.
