Retirement for a co-worker

Good morning! Another beautiful day here in SW Ontario - temp right now 57F - quite the change from last week when we had 100F days!

Back in June, one of my friends and fellow co-workers retired.  Since I'm the 'card maker gal' at work I was asked to make a card from  the group and it had to be large enough for 25 people to sign.  Well I had already started on this when I was asked, and of course I would make a card for her.  Card size is 5 x 7.

Very little stamping on this other than the sentiment.  Paper is from my scrap bin.  I wanted something soft and pretty, and I was lucky to find some co-ordinating papers with the pinks in it to match.

So with some die cutting, lace, stitching, flowers, ribbon, pearls it all came together.   It ended up being a little booklet - I had 8 liner pages inside for everyone to write.

Thanks for stopping in today.  Wish everyone a wonderful day!

Hi Pauline,

So, so pretty. One very lucky lady who receives this card. Stunning.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Much love,

Ohhhh, it's pretty and I love the idea of it being like a booklet. Makes it truly a keepsake. Gosh, I'd probably want to keep it in a glass case! I have a hard time with cards larger than A2, but you made this absolutely perfect. Gorgeous paper, flowers, butterfly, pearls... like a dreamy garden. You were born with the card making gene, for sure!

beautiful! I bet she loved it. The butterfly die cut is a delicate accent with the wonderful papers and flowers. I like that it was a bit larger too. Beautiful
