Two friends are retiring at the end of the school year and I have been busy creating cards and one special book for my Para (one of the retirees-I'll post pics later)

Today's post is of a card I made for a teacher and she loves to fly, she has her pilots license and gives lessons on the weekends. I made a special card for her retirement celebration on Tuesday
(I'm in charge of the center pieces!
here's a pic of the mock-up!)

On Friday I received the cricut circle cart - Pop-Up Neighborhood and when I saw the airplane I finally had an idea for the card.

And, with a challenge on the circle member's only blog I was inspired to create this card. Here is the front or cover and the fancy part is inside (white gel pen to add the "dots").
I used several carts, Pop Up Neighborhood(PUN), Alhpalicious(A), Life's a Beach(LAB), and Cindy Loo(CL) and three requirements (in addition to at least two cuts) chosen from a tick-tack-toe board. I incorporated, a sun shape (from LAB), used my gypsy to weld images (two welds, the word Enjoy from CL and Retirement from A) and buttons were part of the flowers from the PUN cart with the Airplane. I used two PUN, the one from the balloon was designed to be bushes but I turned is upside down to be clouds in the sky, and of course the airplane pop-up cut

and the flower/ grass layer. All the paper is from my scrap stash and I don't know the company or line with the exception of the green grass background, that is coredinations. The buttons are from my stash, many from old shirts that I removed the buttons before tossing.
