Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge: Office Supplies

Our challenge for Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop tonight is to incorporate those fun desk drawer fillers into your project. For my retirement card, I've included paper clips (embossed into the card base), a small binder clip, colored staples, an index card punched with a binding edge, a Rollabind disc and hanging file tab holder.
PTI products include: Vintage Cream CS; Raspberry Suite's 2010 Color Couture Downloads (file folder card template & Vol. 5 patterned paper), Mixed Messages (sentiments), Polka Dot Basics (circles) and Beautiful Bloom II (flower) stamps and Raspberry Fizz & Ripe Avocado inks.
I didn't have a "Things To Do" stamp, so I created that in Word and printed it on my index card strip and then stamped circles for the recipient to check off her accomplished retirement goals!
I'm so excited to see what everyone else created tonight!
