Retirement & Welcome newbies

Howdy do.....

I have been commissioned to make some cards for a company that sells to police officers/firefighters/emt. Yay me!!!

Today I have a fun retirement card for someone who is completing their tour at the Sheriff's Department.

I originally made the card with a bus cap hanging off the sentiment. After showing it to my police sergeant husband, he informed me the hat was all wrong for that kind of law enforcement ...who knew?!?
So I googled it like any respectable investigator would do, and it turns out he is right...I hate that!

In making the card I die cut the "happy" 3 times, stacked and adhered together, then eBrushed with Copic markers.
Hat was die cut with Silhouette Cameo, colored and coated with Pico Shimmer.

I fashioned my card after this spectacular creation loving the large sentiment
across the middle and the ribbon hanging down.
