Happy Retirement

I made this card for a customer who ordered a retirement card for one of her co-workers. She wanted a "bigger" card so that a lot of people could sign it, so it's the larger 5x7 card size. I actually had some trouble with this one, and have been reconfiguring it for weeks now. Why I'm having trouble is beyond me, because for 10 years or more the ONLY size cards I made were 5x7!
At the last minute, I changed the main image matting to include the little flap and brad. I saw something like this on SCS a few days ago, but cannot remember the name of the poster. Whoever you are, thank you!

I'm not sure why it looks so dark in the upper left-hand corner, but IRL is isn't!
