HUGE Retirement card

I can't even tell you how BIG this card is!! I took a 1/2 piece of Bristol Board & folded it in half....LOL
I made it for our principal who is retiring - we had a lot of people coming to her retirement party, so needed a very large card. She is also a scuba diver & will be spending a good chunk of her retirement under water, so thought this image from CHI CHI MEMORIES would be a good one!
The DP is from Tim Holtz - Vintage Shabby paper pack.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Gerda has SO many cute characters & another new release today!!!! Go check them out HERE!
The paper is from a pet pack - from DCWV I think!
