So Sorry You Are Leaving ....................

Good morning to you all

and a Happy Bank Holiday too

This is the first bank holiday in two years that I have been able to spend it with my family, thank you to the new job, which is going fine.

The card I am sharing with you today is one that I made again at the request of my boss for one of my team that was leaving.  Such a lovely lady who will be sadly missed I am sure, but who is moving on to improve her life and build her own business.  She is brilliant at all she does and I am sure things will work out perfectly for her.

As I had done so many leaving cards in a short space of time, I tried to vary the colours for each one, so this one I went with a vibrant yellow to suit the personality of our lovely lady.

This is another 8" square card with extra leaves for those all important special messages to make it a real keepsake.  It again was in a crisp white depth card box.

I used Distress inks to get the tone on tone colour on this card.  I coloured up the edge of the first layer.  Used the ink through the embossing folder to get a hint of colour on the white layer, along with those pretty debossed images.  The grand oval scallop again coloured up the edges, I distressed through the grand oval die for the soft look around the sentiment.  The sentiment was computer generated.  I finished off with one of my triple layer triple depth bows, a rhinestone button, little pearls and an array of florals.  Such a fresh looking card.

I would like to thank all of my lovely followers for their lovely comments, which allows me to pop over to visit you all in return.
