Happy Retirement/Bonne Retraite

Bonjour,
J'ai une carte pour la retraite d'un collègue de travail.  Je voulais garder le tout assez simple, c'est pour un homme après tout!
Hello,
I have a retirement card for a co-worker.  I wanted to keep it simple, it's for a man after all!
Le papier à motif, ruban et carton sont de SU.  Le sentiment est de LOTV.  J'ai mis une découpe de Cheery Lynn Design en arrière de l'image pour ajouter un peu de texture.
The patterned paper, cardstock and ribbon are from SU.  The sentiment is LOTV.  I added a Cheery Lynn Design die cut behind the image to add a bit of dimension.
J'ai colorié la charmante Tilda avec mes Copics sur du carton Neenah.  J'ai ajouté du Crystal Effects sur la larme et du Smooch Illuminate sur le bleu.  J'aime l'effet vieillot et je crois que c'est parfait pour une carte masculine.
I coloured Farewell Tilda with Copics on Neenah cardstock.  I added Crystal Effects on her tear and Smooch Illuminate on the blue parts.  I really like sepia effect, I think it's perfect for a masculine card.

Copics:  E47-44-42-43-41-40-CB-B95-93-91.

J'ai suivi le croquis de Sweet Sketch Wednesday et pour le thème de tout va chez Simon Says Challenge.
I followed the sketch of Sweet Sketch Wednesday and the theme of anything goes at Simon Says Challenge.

I just love how you used that diecut behind the image as the element in the sketch - very nice card. I too like this sepia look - a terrific effect. Great card Brigitte. Thanks for playing along in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge.
