The Journey Begins

Hi All!  I've got a unique retirement card to share with you tonight...it features a gorgeous image called Boobie Love that Krista over at Saturated Canary has kindly given away (check the link for more info).  Now these types of images are always on the top of my must have list because I work in the Breast Care Services department of one of our large local hospitals so I always have plenty of opportunities to put them to good use.  And one of those opportunities just happens to be a co-workers retirement- the truly unique part about this card is that not only is she retiring from her work in Breast Care Services but she's also a two time Breast Cancer survivor...so I really wanted to make her card something special.  I colored my image to match some papers from MME and then went all out girlie on this one- and used tons of pink of course!  I hope that she likes it and, most of all, I hope that retirement allows her to do all the things she's always wanted to :)

Copics:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R21, R30, BV34
Hair: E21, E34, E37, E39, E59
Clothes: R81, R83, R85, E41, E42, E43, E44, E49, W0, W1, W3
