The card is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4." The yellow scalloped square is a DCWV card front. I used Pink Paislee papers (which I love) for the different layers. The scalloped circle was cut at 4 1/2" (I think) using the Mini Monograms Cricut cartridge (never use the font, but I love this cartridge for this scalloped circle and the scalloped square as well). The strawberry was cut using the Celebrate With Flourishes Cricut Lite cartridge at 3". I added cinnamon Stickles to the chocolate coating on the strawberry. I used an EK Success border punch, some satin ribbon, and a Recollections mini rose. The sentiment on the front was punched with a McGill punch. The gems were in my stash. As shown in the title to this post, the inside says, "the 'SWEET' life of retirement. It is well deserved."
I used the current sketch over at Caardvarks and entered the challenge there. This was a wonderful sketch to work with!
Hope you like it! Thanks in advance for your comments.
