Serendipity Stamps - Retirement

Retirement is the theme this week at Serendipity Stamps!  I imagine that when people who like to fish retire, this is where you'll find them - at the dock!  The rowboat looks MUCH redder in the picture than in real life! And I even toned it down with W2 over the red.
The Sailor's Knot Tutorial is by Barb Anders located HERE.
Finished size is 5 4/3 x 4 3/4.

Miriam - great minds must think alike - we used the same image but our cards look so different! Love the bold colors on yours and that fabulous knot! So beautiful!

Miriam, that sailors knot is so perfect for this card! I love your coloring, the red boat is so striking. The patterned paper you chose for this is also gorgeous. Just an all round great retirement card for someone who dreams of fishing!
