Create this Happy Retirement Card using the Let's Go Fishing Suite Collection from Stampin' Up! Laura Milligan, I'd Rather Bee Stampin
I am loving this suite of products!  It’s perfect for masculine (and even for women who like to fish!).  There’s a lot to love about this suite – the dies – the Designer Series Paper – I love the images and words in the stamp set, too!
Here’s a look at the suite:
