New Foil for a Birthday

I'm still loving foil on self-adhesive fun foam, so used a coupon to get one more color. Actually, there are still a few I don't have, but not many--haha! This one is called Opal & I thought it was white.  Actually it's iridescent with pink & green--very pretty, I think.  My blossoms are MFT Layered Rose & the flourish is MFT Large Flourish.  One of the items I bought recently wasn't on sale or part of a prize, but I just couldn't resist the WP9 Lattice die after seeing a card made with it.  The sentiment is from an older Penny Black set & I stamped it in Brilliance Starlite Black on a white panel cut with Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles.  Hope my blogging friend will enjoy this.  Now that I have one WP9 product, I'm entering Throwback Thursday #10--hoping this qualifies.  I'll also add this to Word Art Wednesday. Tomorrow I cross off one more shift in the Countdown to Retirement & there will only be 3 left!  I'm calling it retirement, even though I may work a few shifts in 2016.  No set schedule & no obligation pretty much means retirement! We're so grateful to have dry weather now, even though it's 20s-30s at night.  As you can see, Fritz still thought it was sunbath weather!  
Thanks so much for stopping by.
