Retirement Congrats

This card is for a best friend who retired from 35 years as a state and federal judge this week!  She is a voracious reader, creative chef, a stand-up comedian, knitter, and artistic quilter. I stamped the yellow card stock with an older CTMH set, Two-Step Backgrounds. The black card stocks were a combo of Altenew Essentials and another from my CTMH stash.  The sentiment is a CZ Design from the  Cleanline Everyday set.  It was embossed with Darice Wire Fence embossing folder.

The inspiration came from this TIME OUT Challenges photo. I knew right away I wanted to do a quilt card.  I can't sew, but am addicted to paper quilting!
