My friend and cousin-in-law has just retired after many years working for Koch Industries. She will now join the ranks of us who enjoy everyday being Saturday and can go to bed at night and not have to set the alarm for tomorrow morning! To commemorate this milestone in her life, I wanted to make and send her a congratulations retirement card. I love black and yellow together so that is the color scheme I decided to use. I hope she is careful to following the suggested things to do during retirement found in the card inside. . .one of which is to relax! Take a look below at my finished card inside and out.
