Today we are celebrating a milestone birthday in our family.  It's my Dad's 65th birthday and he can now officially retire!  For his birthday card I delved into new products coming in the 2018 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration to create this card in Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Bermuda Bay, and copper with woodgrain textures...

A swap I recently received from Jacque Williams was the inspiration for this card.  Jacque makes non-standard sized cards and her cards inspire me to think outside the box (or card size as the case may be!).  This wide card makes space for the stamped numbers from the Number of Years stamp set and coordinating Large Number Framelits.  These are one of the most used items I have in my stamping arsenal and are perfect when milestones are celebrated.
