We're sorry you're leaving.. a farewell card

One of my work colleagues, Monika, is leaving our team and office to move to our South Auckland office.. she has build a house out south... so I got asked to make a bigger sized card so all three teams can sign it....


I use a full sheet of A4 card (8" x 11.75") and halved it for my base.  I took a half sheet and trimmed it a bit to make to top layer.  I used my computer to type the sentiment (font: PlumNDE)  I used some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to add some splotches.  I stamped and die cut the Beautiful Day Peony and the leaves from Altenew with Altenew inks.  For a bit of added interest I punched the edge and added the pink behind it.  I also used my score board to add a frame around the other three sides of the panel.   As I took my photo at night, the lighting isn't the best. 

We will miss Monika's cheerfulness in our team, but hope this card will reminder of us all.

Counting down the days now till we head to Perth... packing will get done tomorrow and then 3 days of work.  Can't wait.
