CR84FN Retirement Card

Hi All!
I have my entry for this week's CR84FN color challenge to share today. The colors for the challenge are light blue, light yellow, and kraft.
My mom was in need of a retirement card, so I used these colors for a masculine retirement card.
I stamped VersaMark with a woodgrain stamp for the background of the Kraft portion. I used a couple different colors of kraft to make the shells (Cricut-Stretch Your Imagination). I know we're not supposed to use other colors in the contest, but I only had greenish letter stickers at home. But- I did see that one of the sample cards also was sporting some green ;-)

The yellow portion is embossed with some polka dots. I enhanced it when I distressed it so the dots stand out even more! I'm back to my usual mailable cards!

One more!
I call it the "Modern Flowers" card since I used the Modern Basics stamp set to make the petals. It's a very CAS card that is (again) very mailable!

Thanks for checkin' out my creations!!!
