Let's Take A Vacation

Welcome back to another challenge at Open Minded Crafting. We have a new challenge and new theme for you, today.  Our challenge theme this fortnight is Vacation Related. It's summer, so what better theme to play along with. than vacation! Remember, you have to be in it to win it, so come play along at Open Minded Crafting, for your chance to win one of these fabulous prizes!

I took a different approach to the theme and made a retirement card - Because, after all, isn't retirement like a long vacation?! My card uses the image Jumpin Jellybean 2 in 1, from Beansie Doodles, colored with Promarkers. I used  blue and white polka dotted washi tap across the bottom and embellished with three unusually shaped gemstones.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
