classic congrats

A friend of mine recently was appointed to a high level volunteer position so I HAD to make her a card to let her know how proud I was of her accomplishments. I was inspired by all the stationery samples made for the release of the Simply Stationery stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I love their combination of classic and modern images in this set! I only wish I could have figured out how to get a good photo of the subtle sheen of this gold cardstock .

supplies used
stamps: simply stationery, fresh alphabet (PTI)
